DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs.CellStyle Property

Gets or sets the cell style of the edited cell.

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

public DataGridViewCellStyle CellStyle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellStyle
A DataGridViewCellStyle representing the style of the cell being edited.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The specified value when setting this property is null.

To customize the display characteristics of the control, set the properties of the object returned by the CellStyle property rather than setting the properties of the control returned by the Control property.

The following code example illustrates how to handle this event to change the BackColor property of the current cell. To run this example, paste the code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1 and ensure that the EditingControlShowing event is associated with the event handler.

private void dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing(object sender, 
    DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs e)
{
    e.CellStyle.BackColor = Color.Aquamarine;
}
