Private Sub cbGridLines_SelectionChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs)
    Dim cb As ComboBox = sender
    Dim cbi As ComboBoxItem = cb.SelectedItem
    If Me.dataGrid1 IsNot Nothing Then
        If cbi.Content.ToString() = "All" Then
            Me.dataGrid1.GridLinesVisibility = DataGridGridLinesVisibility.All
        ElseIf cbi.Content.ToString() = "Vertical (Default)" Then
            Me.dataGrid1.GridLinesVisibility = DataGridGridLinesVisibility.Vertical
        ElseIf cbi.Content.ToString() = "Horizontal" Then
            Me.dataGrid1.GridLinesVisibility = DataGridGridLinesVisibility.Horizontal
            Me.dataGrid1.GridLinesVisibility = DataGridGridLinesVisibility.None
        End If
    End If
End Sub
private void cbGridLines_SelectionChanged(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    ComboBoxItem cbi = ((ComboBox)sender).SelectedItem as ComboBoxItem;
    if (this.dataGrid1 != null)
        if (cbi.Content.ToString() == "All")
            this.dataGrid1.GridLinesVisibility = DataGridGridLinesVisibility.All;
        else if (cbi.Content.ToString() == "Vertical (Default)")
            this.dataGrid1.GridLinesVisibility = DataGridGridLinesVisibility.Vertical;
        else if (cbi.Content.ToString() == "Horizontal")
            this.dataGrid1.GridLinesVisibility = DataGridGridLinesVisibility.Horizontal;
