DataGridViewCellPaintingEventArgs.ClipBounds Property

Gets the area of the DataGridView that needs to be repainted.

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

public Rectangle ClipBounds { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Rectangle
A Rectangle that represents the area of the DataGridView that needs to be repainted.

The ClipBounds property represents the area of the DataGridView that needs to be repainted. For example, if a user covers the entire DataGridView with another window, and then uncovers it, then ClipBounds represents the entire DataGridView. If a user covers a small area of the DataGridView, and then uncovers it, then ClipBounds represents the small area that was covered.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the DataGridView.CellPainting event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type DataGridView named DataGridView1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the DataGridView.CellPainting event.

private void DataGridView1_CellPainting(Object sender, DataGridViewCellPaintingEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "AdvancedBorderStyle", e.AdvancedBorderStyle );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "CellBounds", e.CellBounds );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "CellStyle", e.CellStyle );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ClipBounds", e.ClipBounds );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ColumnIndex", e.ColumnIndex );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ErrorText", e.ErrorText );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "FormattedValue", e.FormattedValue );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "PaintParts", e.PaintParts );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "RowIndex", e.RowIndex );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "State", e.State );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Value", e.Value );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Handled", e.Handled );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "CellPainting Event" );
}
