GridView.CellSpacing Property

Gets or sets the amount of space between cells.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public virtual int CellSpacing { get; set; }
/** @property */
public int get_CellSpacing ()

/** @property */
public void set_CellSpacing (int value)

public function get CellSpacing () : int

public function set CellSpacing (value : int)

Not applicable.

Property Value

The amount of space, in pixels, between cells. The default value is 0.

Use the CellSpacing property to control the spacing between adjacent cells in the GridView control. This spacing is applied both vertically and horizontally. The cell spacing is uniform for the entire control. Individual cell spacing between rows or columns cannot be specified.

NoteNote:

If you set this property to a value greater than 0 and then set the GridLines property to a value that displays the cell borders, a gap is displayed between the borders of adjacent cells. In this situation, the CellSpacing property controls the size of the gap.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the CellSpacing property to declaratively set the amount of space between the cells of a GridView control.
