DataGridTextBoxColumn Constructor (PropertyDescriptor)

Initializes a new instance of a DataGridTextBoxColumn with a specified PropertyDescriptor.

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

public DataGridTextBoxColumn(
	PropertyDescriptor prop


Type: System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptor

The PropertyDescriptor for the column with which the DataGridTextBoxColumn will be associated.

The DataGridColumnStyle uses a PropertyDescriptor to determine the type of data displayed in the column. To return a PropertyDescriptorCollection, use the GetItemProperties method of the BindingManagerBase class.

The following example creates a DataGridTextBoxColumn and adds it to the GridColumnStylesCollection collection.

private void AddColumn(DataTable myTable){
    // Add a new DataColumn to the DataTable.
    DataColumn myColumn = new DataColumn("myTextBoxColumn");
    myColumn.DataType = typeof(String);
    myColumn.DefaultValue="default string";
    // Get the ListManager for the DataTable.
    CurrencyManager cm = (CurrencyManager)this.BindingContext[myTable];
    // Use the ListManager to get the PropertyDescriptor for the new column.
    PropertyDescriptor pd = cm.GetItemProperties()["myTextBoxColumn"];
    // Create a new DataTimeFormat object.
    DateTimeFormatInfo fmt = new DateTimeFormatInfo();
    // Insert code to set format.
    DataGridTextBoxColumn myColumnTextColumn;
    // Create the DataGridTextBoxColumn with the PropertyDescriptor and Format.
    myColumnTextColumn = new DataGridTextBoxColumn(pd, fmt.SortableDateTimePattern);
    // Add the new DataGridColumnStyle to the GridColumnsCollection.
