member this.GetColumnsWidth : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewElementStates -> int
Public Function GetColumnsWidth (includeFilter As DataGridViewElementStates) As Integer

Parameters

includeFilter
DataGridViewElementStates

A bitwise combination of the DataGridViewElementStates values that represent the filter for inclusion.

Returns

The width, in pixels, that is necessary to display all of the columns that meet the filter requirements.

Examples

The following code example illustrates the use of this method. This example is part of a larger example available in How to: Customize the Appearance of Rows in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

// Paints the custom selection background for selected rows.
void dataGridView1_RowPrePaint(object sender,
        DataGridViewRowPrePaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Do not automatically paint the focus rectangle.
    e.PaintParts &= ~DataGridViewPaintParts.Focus;

    // Determine whether the cell should be painted
    // with the custom selection background.
    if ((e.State & DataGridViewElementStates.Selected) ==
                DataGridViewElementStates.Selected)
    {
        // Calculate the bounds of the row.
        Rectangle rowBounds = new Rectangle(
            this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth, e.RowBounds.Top,
            this.dataGridView1.Columns.GetColumnsWidth(
                DataGridViewElementStates.Visible) -
            this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset + 1,
            e.RowBounds.Height);

        // Paint the custom selection background.
        using (Brush backbrush =
            new System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientBrush(rowBounds,
                this.dataGridView1.DefaultCellStyle.SelectionBackColor,
                e.InheritedRowStyle.ForeColor,
                System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientMode.Horizontal))
        {
            e.Graphics.FillRectangle(backbrush, rowBounds);
        }
    }
}

            System.Drawing.Drawing2D.LinearGradientMode.Horizontal)
        Try
            e.Graphics.FillRectangle(backbrush, rowBounds)
        Finally
            backbrush.Dispose()
        End Try
