TableLayoutPanel.GetRow Method

Returns the row position of the specified child control.

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

public int GetRow(
	Control control


Type: System.Windows.Forms.Control

A child control of the TableLayoutPanel.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
The row position of control, or -1 if the position of control is determined by LayoutEngine.


control is null.


control is not a type that can be arranged by this System.Windows.Forms.Layout.LayoutEngine.

If control spans two or more rows, the GetRow method will return the lowest row index.

The row position value is zero based, so you can use it as an index for the array returned by GetRowHeights.

This method is called by the Row property, which the panel adds to its child controls at design time.

To get the actual position of control, even when its position is determined by LayoutEngine, call the GetPositionFromControl method.

The following code example enumerates all the child controls in the TableLayoutPanel and finds the row index for each using the GetRow method.

    private void getRowBtn_Click(
		System.Object sender, 
		System.EventArgs e)
        foreach ( Control c in this.TableLayoutPanel1.Controls )
