DataGridView.ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle Property

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

Gets or sets the default column header style.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public DataGridViewCellStyle ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle { get; set; }
/** @property */
public DataGridViewCellStyle get_ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle ()

/** @property */
public void set_ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle (DataGridViewCellStyle value)

public function get ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle () : DataGridViewCellStyle

public function set ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle (value : DataGridViewCellStyle)

Property Value

A DataGridViewCellStyle that represents the default column header style.

The default DataGridViewCellStyle returned by this property has the following initial property values:

DataGridViewCellStyle property

Default value

BackColor

The value of the SystemBrushes.Control property.

ForeColor

The value of the SystemBrushes.WindowText property.

SelectionBackColor

The value of the SystemBrushes.Highlight property.

SelectionForeColor

The value of the SystemBrushes.HighlightText property.

Font

The value of the Font property.

Alignment

DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleLeft

WrapMode

DataGridViewTriState.True

These values automatically override the values set through the DefaultCellStyle property. To force column headers to inherit the DefaultCellStyle values, you must set the values in the ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle object to the default values indicated for the DataGridViewCellStyle class.

For more information about cell style inheritance, see Cell Styles in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

The following code example demonstrates how to set the ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle, AutoSizeRowsMode, ColumnHeadersBorderStyle, CellBorderStyle, GridColor, BackgroundColor, RowHeadersVisible, SelectionMode, ColumnCount, and MultiSelect properties. In addition, the code example demonstrates how to set the DataGridViewColumn.Name and DataGridViewColumn.DefaultCellStyle properties. To run this example, paste the code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1, and then call the SetUpDataGridView method from the form's constructor or Load event handler. Ensure all events are associated with their event handlers.

private void SetUpDataGridView()
{
    this.Controls.Add(dataGridView1);
    dataGridView1.ColumnCount = 5;
    DataGridViewCellStyle style = 
        dataGridView1.ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle;
    style.BackColor = Color.Navy;
    style.ForeColor = Color.White;
    style.Font = new Font(dataGridView1.Font, FontStyle.Bold);

    dataGridView1.EditMode = DataGridViewEditMode.EditOnEnter;
    dataGridView1.Name = "dataGridView1";
    dataGridView1.Location = new Point(8, 8);
    dataGridView1.Size = new Size(500, 300);
    dataGridView1.AutoSizeRowsMode = 
        DataGridViewAutoSizeRowsMode.DisplayedCellsExceptHeaders;
    dataGridView1.ColumnHeadersBorderStyle = 
        DataGridViewHeaderBorderStyle.Raised;
    dataGridView1.CellBorderStyle = DataGridViewCellBorderStyle.Single;
    dataGridView1.GridColor = SystemColors.ActiveBorder;
    dataGridView1.RowHeadersVisible = false;

    dataGridView1.Columns[0].Name = "Release Date";
    dataGridView1.Columns[1].Name = "Track";
    dataGridView1.Columns[1].DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = 
        DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter;
    dataGridView1.Columns[2].Name = "Title";
    dataGridView1.Columns[3].Name = "Artist";
    dataGridView1.Columns[4].Name = "Album";

    // Make the font italic for row four.
    dataGridView1.Columns[4].DefaultCellStyle.Font = new Font(DataGridView.DefaultFont, FontStyle.Italic);

    dataGridView1.SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.FullRowSelect;
    dataGridView1.MultiSelect = false;

    dataGridView1.BackgroundColor = Color.Honeydew;

    dataGridView1.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;

    dataGridView1.CellFormatting += new DataGridViewCellFormattingEventHandler(dataGridView1_CellFormatting);
    dataGridView1.CellParsing += new DataGridViewCellParsingEventHandler(dataGridView1_CellParsing);
    addNewRowButton.Click += new EventHandler(addNewRowButton_Click);
    deleteRowButton.Click += new EventHandler(deleteRowButton_Click);
    ledgerStyleButton.Click += new EventHandler(ledgerStyleButton_Click);
    dataGridView1.CellValidating += new DataGridViewCellValidatingEventHandler(dataGridView1_CellValidating);
