Handle the EditingControlShowing event to perform custom initialization of the editing control when a cell enters edit mode. To customize the display characteristics of the control, set the properties of the object returned by the CellStyle property rather than setting the properties of the control returned by the Control property.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example illustrates how to handle this event to change the BackColor property of the current cell. To run this example, paste the code into a form that contains a DataGridView named dataGridView1 and ensure that the EditingControlShowing event is associated with the event handler.

private void dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing(object sender, 
    DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs e)
{
    e.CellStyle.BackColor = Color.Aquamarine;
}
