DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the RowPostPaint event of a DataGridView.

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

public delegate void DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventHandler (
	Object sender,
	DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventArgs e
)
/** @delegate */
public delegate void DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventHandler (
	Object sender, 
	DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventArgs e
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

sender

The source of the event.

e

A DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventArgs that contains the event data.

When you create a DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see Events and Delegates.

The following code example presents a DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventHandler delegate that paints textual content that spans the entire row below the normal cell values. This code example is part of a larger example provided in How to: Customize the Appearance of Rows in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

// Paints the content that spans multiple columns and the focus rectangle.
void dataGridView1_RowPostPaint(object sender,
    DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Calculate the bounds of the row.
    Rectangle rowBounds = new Rectangle(
        this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth, e.RowBounds.Top,
        this.dataGridView1.Columns.GetColumnsWidth(
            DataGridViewElementStates.Visible) -
        this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset + 1,
        e.RowBounds.Height);

    SolidBrush forebrush = null;
    try
    {
        // Determine the foreground color.
        if ((e.State & DataGridViewElementStates.Selected) ==
            DataGridViewElementStates.Selected)
        {
            forebrush = new SolidBrush(e.InheritedRowStyle.SelectionForeColor);
        }
        else
        {
            forebrush = new SolidBrush(e.InheritedRowStyle.ForeColor);
        }

        // Get the content that spans multiple columns.
        object recipe =
            this.dataGridView1.Rows.SharedRow(e.RowIndex).Cells[2].Value;

        if (recipe != null)
        {
            String text = recipe.ToString();

            // Calculate the bounds for the content that spans multiple 
            // columns, adjusting for the horizontal scrolling position 
            // and the current row height, and displaying only whole
            // lines of text.
            Rectangle textArea = rowBounds;
            textArea.X -= this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset;
            textArea.Width += this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset;
            textArea.Y += rowBounds.Height - e.InheritedRowStyle.Padding.Bottom;
            textArea.Height -= rowBounds.Height -
                e.InheritedRowStyle.Padding.Bottom;
            textArea.Height = (textArea.Height / e.InheritedRowStyle.Font.Height) *
                e.InheritedRowStyle.Font.Height;

            // Calculate the portion of the text area that needs painting.
            RectangleF clip = textArea;
            clip.Width -= this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth + 1 - clip.X;
            clip.X = this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth + 1;
            RectangleF oldClip = e.Graphics.ClipBounds;
            e.Graphics.SetClip(clip);

            // Draw the content that spans multiple columns.
            e.Graphics.DrawString(
                text, e.InheritedRowStyle.Font, forebrush, textArea);

            e.Graphics.SetClip(oldClip);
        }
    }
    finally
    {
        forebrush.Dispose();
    }

    if (this.dataGridView1.CurrentCellAddress.Y == e.RowIndex)
    {
        // Paint the focus rectangle.
        e.DrawFocus(rowBounds, true);
    }
}
