DataGridViewLinkCell.LinkBehavior Property

Gets or sets a value that represents the behavior of a link.

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

public LinkBehavior LinkBehavior { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.LinkBehavior
One of the LinkBehavior values. The default is SystemDefault.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidEnumArgumentException

The specified value when setting this property is not a valid LinkBehavior value.

Examples of link behavior include whether the link always displays an underline or the link only displays an underline when the mouse pointer moves over it, and whether a double click or a single click activates a link.

Setting the LinkBehavior property of the owning column also sets the LinkBehavior property of every cell in the column and refreshes the column display. To override the specified value for individual cells, set the cell values after you set the column value.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the DataGridViewLinkColumn.LinkBehavior property, which is similar to this property. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewComboBoxColumn class overview topic.


private void AddLinkColumn()
{
    DataGridViewLinkColumn links = new DataGridViewLinkColumn();

    links.UseColumnTextForLinkValue = true;
    links.HeaderText = ColumnName.ReportsTo.ToString();
    links.DataPropertyName = ColumnName.ReportsTo.ToString();
    links.ActiveLinkColor = Color.White;
    links.LinkBehavior = LinkBehavior.SystemDefault;
    links.LinkColor = Color.Blue;
    links.TrackVisitedState = true;
    links.VisitedLinkColor = Color.YellowGreen;

    DataGridView1.Columns.Add(links);
}
