Gets or sets the run-time type of the default header cell.

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

public Type DefaultHeaderCellType { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Type
A Type that describes the run-time class of the object used as the default header cell.


The specified value when setting this property is not a Type representing DataGridViewHeaderCell or a derived type.

This property must get or set an instance of the DataGridViewHeaderCell class or one of its derived types. For example, the DataGridViewRow class uses a DataGridViewRowHeaderCell as the default header cell type. Similarly, the DataGridViewColumn class uses a DataGridViewColumnHeaderCell.

If you are using a custom type derived from DataGridViewHeaderCell in a row or column, the DefaultHeaderCellType property must be set to the custom type.
