ColumnStyle Class

Represents the look and feel of a column in a table layout.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public class ColumnStyle : TableLayoutStyle

The ColumnStyle class represents the user interface (UI) characteristics of column in a TableLayoutPanel. The styles for all the columns in such a table are collected in the TableLayoutPanel.ColumnStyles property.

This simple class offers the Width and SizeType properties for a column.

The following code example demonstrates how to extract a ColumnStyle from a TableLayoutColumnStyleCollection.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TableLayoutPanel class.

    private void toggleColumnStylesBtn_Click(
		System.Object sender, 
		System.EventArgs e)
    {
		TableLayoutColumnStyleCollection styles = 
			this.TableLayoutPanel1.ColumnStyles;

        foreach( ColumnStyle style in styles )
        {
            if( style.SizeType == SizeType.Absolute )
            {
                style.SizeType = SizeType.AutoSize;
            }
            else if( style.SizeType == SizeType.AutoSize )
            {
                style.SizeType = SizeType.Percent;

                // Set the column width to be a percentage 
                // of the TableLayoutPanel control's width.
                style.Width = 33;
            }
            else
            {
                // Set the column width to 50 pixels.
                style.SizeType = SizeType.Absolute;
                style.Width = 50;
            }
        }
    }
