The CellBorderStyle property of the DataGridView control uses the DataGridViewCellBorderStyle enumeration.

To draw borders only between the columns, specify SingleVertical, SunkenVertical or RaisedVertical. To draw borders between the rows and columns, specify Single Sunken or Raised.

The following code example illustrates the use of this type.

private void SetBorderAndGridlineStyles()
{
    this.dataGridView1.GridColor = Color.BlueViolet;
    this.dataGridView1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Fixed3D;
    this.dataGridView1.CellBorderStyle =
        DataGridViewCellBorderStyle.None;
    this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersBorderStyle =
        DataGridViewHeaderBorderStyle.Single;
    this.dataGridView1.ColumnHeadersBorderStyle =
        DataGridViewHeaderBorderStyle.Single;
}
