DataGridView::AllowUserToResizeColumns Property

 

Gets or sets a value indicating whether users can resize columns.

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

public:
property bool AllowUserToResizeColumns {
	bool get();
	void set(bool value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if users can resize columns; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Use this property to prevent users from manually changing column widths. This is useful, for example, with display-only columns where data is loaded once and columns are resized at that time.

For more information about user resizing, see Sizing Options in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

System_CAPS_noteNote

The DataGridView control does not support double buffering. If DoubleBuffered is set to true in a derived DataGridView control, users will not receive visual feedback when resizing rows, columns, or headers or when reordering columns.

The following code example illustrates how to use this property in a DataGridView control intended primarily for display. In this example, the visual appearance of the control is customized in several ways and the control is configured for limited interactivity. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewCellStyle class overview.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
