DetailsView.CellSpacing Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

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)

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 DetailsView 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.

To adjust the spacing between the contents of a cell and the cell's border, use the CellPadding property.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the CellSpacing property to specify the amount of spacing between adjacent cells.
