Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in

public Panel EditingPanel { get; }

public Panel get_EditingPanel ()

public function get EditingPanel () : Panel

Property Value

The Panel that contains the EditingControl.

Unlike the EditingControl property, which is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) when the current cell is not in edit mode, the EditingPanel property is always available.

The following code example illustrates how to use the EditingPanel property in a DataGridView control to visually differentiate a cell when it is in edit mode. In this example, the BorderStyle of the cell's editing panel is set to Fixed3D. To run this example, paste the code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1.

this.dataGridView1.EditingPanel.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Fixed3D;
