Gets or sets the default style applied to the row cells of the DataGridView.

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

member RowsDefaultCellStyle : DataGridViewCellStyle with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellStyle

The DataGridViewCellStyle to apply to the row cells of the DataGridView.

The DataGridView control displays its cells using the styles indicated by the cell InheritedStyle property, which inherits styles from other properties of type DataGridViewCellStyle. For cells in all rows, excluding header cells, the styles specified through the RowsDefaultCellStyle property override the styles specified through the DefaultCellStyle and DataGridViewColumn.DefaultCellStyle properties, and are overridden by the styles specified through the AlternatingRowsDefaultCellStyle, DataGridViewRow.DefaultCellStyle, and DataGridViewCell.Style properties.

For more information, see Cell Styles in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

When getting this property, a DataGridViewCellStyle with default values will be created if the property has not already been accessed. This can cause a performance impact when getting this property for many rows. Whenever possible, use a single DataGridViewCellStyle to set this property for multiple rows. For more information, see Best Practices for Scaling the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

The following code example illustrates how to use this property to create a ledger effect in a DataGridView control. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewCellStyle class overview.
