TableLayoutPanel.GrowStyle Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the TableLayoutPanel control should expand to accommodate new cells when all existing cells are occupied.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle GrowStyle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle
A TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle indicating the growth scheme. The default is AddRows.
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

The property value is invalid for the TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle enumeration.

By default, the TableLayoutPanel control expands downward by adding rows.

NoteNote

If an attempt is made to add a control to a full TableLayoutPanel control, and the value of GrowStyle is FixedSize, then an ArgumentException is thrown.

The following code example sets the value of the GrowStyle property depending on the selected RadioButton. At run time, when the user clicks on the button labeled Test GrowStyle, a Button control is added to the TableLayoutPanel control. If the TableLayoutPanel control is full, it expands by adding a row or column, or it raises an exception, depending on the value of GrowStyle.

    private void growStyleNoneBtn_CheckedChanged(
		System.Object sender, 
		System.EventArgs e)
    {
        this.tlpGrowStyle = TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle.FixedSize;
    }

    private void growStyleAddRowBtn_CheckedChanged(
		System.Object sender, 
		System.EventArgs e)
    {
        this.tlpGrowStyle = TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle.AddRows;
    }

    private void growStyleAddColumnBtn_CheckedChanged(
		System.Object sender, 
		System.EventArgs e)
    {
        this.tlpGrowStyle = TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle.AddColumns;
    }

    private void testGrowStyleBtn_Click(
		System.Object sender, 
		System.EventArgs e)
    {
        this.TableLayoutPanel1.GrowStyle = this.tlpGrowStyle;

        try
        {
            this.TableLayoutPanel1.Controls.Add(new Button());
        }
        catch(ArgumentException ex)
        {
            Trace.WriteLine(ex.Message);
        }
    }
