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

public int PreferredRowHeight { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The height of a row, in pixels.

The preferred height is the minimum height needed to accommodate the displayed text with the assigned HeaderFont. A row will not be created with a height less than the specified value. If the font size requires it, however, the row height may be greater than the specified value.

int myPreferredRowHeight=Convert.ToInt32(myTextBox.Text.Trim());
if(myPreferredRowHeight<18 || myPreferredRowHeight >134)
   MessageBox.Show("Enter the height between 18 and 134");
// Set the 'PreferredRowHeight' property of DataGridTableStyle instance.
// Add the DataGridTableStyle instance to the GridTableStylesCollection.
