Resets the HeaderBackColor property to its default value.

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

public void ResetHeaderBackColor()

You typically use this method if you are either creating a designer for the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid or creating your own control incorporating the System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid. You can use the ShouldSerializeHeaderBackColor method to determine whether the property value has changed from its default.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member.

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
   ColorDialog myColorDialog = new ColorDialog();
   // Disable selecting a custom color.
   myColorDialog.AllowFullOpen = false ;
   // Enable the help button.
   myColorDialog.ShowHelp = true ;
   // Set the initial color to the current color.
   myColorDialog.Color = myDataGrid.HeaderBackColor;
   // Show color dialog box.
   // Set the header background color.   
   myDataGrid.HeaderBackColor  = myColorDialog.Color;

// Reset the header background color.
private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
