DataGridViewButtonColumn Class

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

Hosts a collection of DataGridViewButtonCell objects.

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

public class DataGridViewButtonColumn : DataGridViewColumn
public class DataGridViewButtonColumn extends DataGridViewColumn
public class DataGridViewButtonColumn extends DataGridViewColumn

The DataGridViewButtonColumn class is a specialized type of the DataGridViewColumn class used to logically host cells that respond to simple user input. A DataGridViewButtonColumn has an associated DataGridViewButtonCell in every DataGridViewRow that intersects it. Each cell supplies a user interface (UI) that is similar to a Button control.

To display the same button text for every cell, set the UseColumnTextForButtonValue property to true and set the Text property to the desired button text.

The default sort mode for this column type is NotSortable.

To respond to user button clicks, handle the DataGridView.CellContentClick event.

NoteNote

When visual styles are enabled, the buttons in a button column are painted using a ButtonRenderer, and cell styles specified through properties such as DefaultCellStyle have no effect.

Notes to Inheritors When you derive from DataGridViewButtonColumn and add new properties to the derived class, be sure to override the Clone method to copy the new properties during cloning operations. You should also call the base class's Clone method so that the properties of the base class are copied to the new cell.

The following code example demonstrates how to use a DataGridViewButtonColumn to view the sales an employee has made.

private void AddButtonColumn()
{
    DataGridViewButtonColumn buttons = new DataGridViewButtonColumn();
    {
        buttons.HeaderText = "Sales";
        buttons.Text = "Sales";
        buttons.UseColumnTextForButtonValue = true;
        buttons.AutoSizeMode =
            DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.AllCells;
        buttons.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Standard;
        buttons.CellTemplate.Style.BackColor = Color.Honeydew;
        buttons.DisplayIndex = 0;
    }

    DataGridView1.Columns.Add(buttons);

}
