DataGridViewColumnCollection Class

Represents a collection of DataGridViewColumn objects in a DataGridView control.

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

public class DataGridViewColumnCollection : BaseCollection, IList, ICollection, IEnumerable
public class DataGridViewColumnCollection extends BaseCollection implements IList, ICollection, 
	IEnumerable
public class DataGridViewColumnCollection extends BaseCollection implements IList, ICollection, 
	IEnumerable
Not applicable.

You can retrieve an instance of this class through the Columns property of the DataGridView control. The collection maintains a reference to the control through the DataGridView property.

The following code example illustrates the use of this type.

private DataGridView dataGridView1 = new DataGridView();

private void AddColorColumn()
{
    DataGridViewComboBoxColumn comboBoxColumn =
        new DataGridViewComboBoxColumn();
    comboBoxColumn.Items.AddRange(
        Color.Red, Color.Yellow, Color.Green, Color.Blue);
    comboBoxColumn.ValueType = typeof(Color);
    dataGridView1.Columns.Add(comboBoxColumn);
    dataGridView1.EditingControlShowing +=
        new DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventHandler(
        dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing);
}

private void dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing(object sender,
    DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs e)
{
    ComboBox combo = e.Control as ComboBox;
    if (combo != null)
    {
        // Remove an existing event-handler, if present, to avoid 
        // adding multiple handlers when the editing control is reused.
        combo.SelectedIndexChanged -=
            new EventHandler(ComboBox_SelectedIndexChanged);

        // Add the event handler. 
        combo.SelectedIndexChanged +=
            new EventHandler(ComboBox_SelectedIndexChanged);
    }
}

private void ComboBox_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    ((ComboBox)sender).BackColor = (Color)((ComboBox)sender).SelectedItem;
}
