Table.CellSpacing Property

Gets or sets the amount of space between cells.

[Visual Basic]
Public Overridable Property CellSpacing As Integer
public virtual int CellSpacing {get; set;}
public: __property virtual int get_CellSpacing();
public: __property virtual void set_CellSpacing(int);
public function get CellSpacing() : int;
public function set CellSpacing(int);

Property Value

The amount of space, in pixels, between cells. The default value is -1, which indicates that the property has not been set.


Use the CellSpacing property to control the spacing between adjacent cells in the Table control. This spacing is applied both vertically and horizontally. The cell spacing is uniform for the entire table. Individual cell spacing between each row or column cannot be specified.

Note   If you set this property to a value greater than 0 and set the GridLines property to a value that displays the cell borders, a gap is displayed between the borders of adjacent cells. In this situation, the CellSpacing property controls the size of the gap.


Platforms: Windows 2000, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003 family
