DataGridView.EnableHeadersVisualStyles Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether row and column headers use the visual styles of the user's current theme if visual styles are enabled for the application.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public bool EnableHeadersVisualStyles { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if visual styles are enabled for the headers; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

You can enable visual styles for your application by calling the Application.EnableVisualStyles method before calling the Application.Run method. If EnableHeadersVisualStyles is set to true, all header cells except the TopLeftHeaderCell are painted using the current theme.

The following code example demonstrates how to disable visual styles for the row and column headers in an application that has visual styles enabled. In this example, visual styles have been enabled for the application by calling the EnableVisualStyles method in Main. However, visual styles will not be applied to the row and column headers because EnableHeadersVisualStyles is set to false. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewAdvancedBorderStyle class.

public CustomDataGridView()
{
    this.RowTemplate = new DataGridViewCustomRow();
    this.Columns.Add(new DataGridViewCustomColumn());
    this.Columns.Add(new DataGridViewCustomColumn());
    this.Columns.Add(new DataGridViewCustomColumn());
    this.RowCount = 4;
    this.EnableHeadersVisualStyles = false;
    this.AutoSize = true;
}
