Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to handle the RowPostPaint event to make the content of a cell span the entire row. This code example is part of a larger example provided in How to: Customize the Appearance of Rows in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

// Paints the content that spans multiple columns and the focus rectangle.
void dataGridView1_RowPostPaint(object sender,
    DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventArgs e)
{
    // 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);

    SolidBrush forebrush = null;
    try
    {
        // Determine the foreground color.
        if ((e.State & DataGridViewElementStates.Selected) ==
            DataGridViewElementStates.Selected)
        {
            forebrush = new SolidBrush(e.InheritedRowStyle.SelectionForeColor);
        }
        else
        {
            forebrush = new SolidBrush(e.InheritedRowStyle.ForeColor);
        }

        // Get the content that spans multiple columns.
        object recipe =
            this.dataGridView1.Rows.SharedRow(e.RowIndex).Cells[2].Value;

        if (recipe != null)
        {
            String text = recipe.ToString();

            // Calculate the bounds for the content that spans multiple 
            // columns, adjusting for the horizontal scrolling position 
            // and the current row height, and displaying only whole
            // lines of text.
            Rectangle textArea = rowBounds;
            textArea.X -= this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset;
            textArea.Width += this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset;
            textArea.Y += rowBounds.Height - e.InheritedRowStyle.Padding.Bottom;

                e.InheritedRowStyle.Font.Height;

            // Calculate the portion of the text area that needs painting.
            RectangleF clip = textArea;
            clip.Width -= this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth + 1 - clip.X;
            clip.X = this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth + 1;
            RectangleF oldClip = e.Graphics.ClipBounds;
            e.Graphics.SetClip(clip);

            // Draw the content that spans multiple columns.

                text, e.InheritedRowStyle.Font, forebrush, textArea);

Remarks

The RowPostPaint event occurs after a row is painted on a DataGridView control. RowPostPaint allows you to manually adjust the appearance of the row after the cells in the row are painted. This is useful if you want to customize the row.
