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

[BrowsableAttribute(true)]
public DataGridViewCellStyle Style { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellStyle

The style associated with the cell.

The DataGridView control displays its cells using the styles indicated by the cell InheritedStyle property, which inherits styles from other properties of type DataGridViewCellStyle. The styles specified through the Style property override the styles specified through all other cell-style properties, but do not necessarily indicate all the styles that contribute to the cell's appearance.

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

The following code example demonstrates how to use the Style property to get the background color of a cell. This example is part of a larger code example provided for the DataGridViewColumn class.

private void CustomizeCellsInThirdColumn()
{
    int thirdColumn = 2;
    DataGridViewColumn column =
        dataGridView.Columns[thirdColumn];
    DataGridViewCell cell = new DataGridViewTextBoxCell();

    cell.Style.BackColor = Color.Wheat;
    column.CellTemplate = cell;
}
