The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets or sets the style applied to the edited cell.

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

public DataGridViewCellStyle InheritedCellStyle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellStyle

A DataGridViewCellStyle that represents the current style of the cell being edited. The default value is the value of the cell InheritedStyle property.

You can use this property to determine the formatting in effect for the cell. Setting this property or changing the properties of the object that this property returns has no effect unless the ParsingApplied is false when the event handler exits. In this case, the NullValue, DataSourceNullValue, and FormatProvider properties of the cell style are used to parse the cell value.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the DataGridView.CellParsing event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type DataGridView named DataGridView1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the DataGridView.CellParsing event.

private void DataGridView1_CellParsing(Object sender, DataGridViewCellParsingEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "RowIndex", e.RowIndex );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ColumnIndex", e.ColumnIndex );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "InheritedCellStyle", e.InheritedCellStyle );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ParsingApplied", e.ParsingApplied );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Value", e.Value );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "DesiredType", e.DesiredType );
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "CellParsing Event" );
