Gets or sets the template used to create new cells.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
[<BrowsableAttribute(false)>] abstract CellTemplate : DataGridViewCell with get, set [<BrowsableAttribute(false)>] override CellTemplate : DataGridViewCell with get, set
The constructors for the DataGridViewColumn class initialize this property. The default constructor sets the property to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic); the other constructor copies the cell template from its parameter.
Changing the properties of the cell template will not immediately affect the user interface (UI) of the column's existing cells. These changes are only apparent after the column is regenerated (for example, by sorting the column or through a call to the DataGridView.InvalidateColumn method).
The following code example demonstrates how to use a DataGridViewCell as a template for a DataGridViewColumn. Style changes made to any cell in the column affect all of the column's cells. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewColumn class.
