The CellBorderStyle property of the DataGridView control uses the DataGridViewCellBorderStyle enumeration. To draw borders only between the rows, specify SingleHorizontal, SunkenHorizontal or RaisedHorizontal. To draw borders only between the columns, specify SingleVertical, SunkenVertical or RaisedVertical. To draw borders between the rows and columns, specify SingleSunken or Raised.

The following code example illustrates the use of this type.

private void SetBorderAndGridlineStyles()
{
    this.dataGridView1.GridColor = Color.BlueViolet;
    this.dataGridView1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Fixed3D;
    this.dataGridView1.CellBorderStyle =
        DataGridViewCellBorderStyle.None;
    this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersBorderStyle =
        DataGridViewHeaderBorderStyle.Single;
    this.dataGridView1.ColumnHeadersBorderStyle =
        DataGridViewHeaderBorderStyle.Single;
}
