DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs.CellStyle Property


Gets or sets the cell style of the edited cell.

 property System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewCellStyle ^ CellStyle { System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewCellStyle ^ get(); void set(System::Windows::Forms::DataGridViewCellStyle ^ value); };
public System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellStyle CellStyle { get; set; }
member this.CellStyle : System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellStyle with get, set
Public Property CellStyle As DataGridViewCellStyle

Property Value


A DataGridViewCellStyle representing the style of the cell being edited.


The specified value when setting this property is null.


The following code example illustrates how to handle this event to change the BackColor property of the current cell. To run this example, paste the code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1 and ensure that the EditingControlShowing event is associated with the event handler.

private void dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing(object sender, 
    DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs e)
    e.CellStyle.BackColor = Color.Aquamarine;
Private Sub dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs) _
    Handles dataGridView1.EditingControlShowing

    e.CellStyle.BackColor = Color.Aquamarine

End Sub


To customize the display characteristics of the control, set the properties of the object returned by the CellStyle property rather than setting the properties of the control returned by the Control property.
