TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle Enumeration

Specifies how a TableLayoutPanel will gain additional rows or columns after its existing cells are full.

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

public enum TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle

Member nameDescription
FixedSizeThe TableLayoutPanel does not allow additional rows or columns after it is full.
AddRowsThe TableLayoutPanel gains additional rows after it is full.
AddColumnsThe TableLayoutPanel gains additional columns after it is full.

If all the cells in the TableLayoutPanel are filled and the GrowStyle property is set to FixedSize, an attempt to add another control will throw an exception.

The following example shows how to use TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle to set the GrowStyle property on a TableLayoutPanel control. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TableLayoutPanel control.


    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);
        }
    }
