DataGridViewCellStyleContentChangedEventArgs Class


Provides data for the CellStyleContentChanged event.

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


public class DataGridViewCellStyleContentChangedEventArgs : EventArgs


Gets the changed DataGridViewCellStyle.


Gets the scope that is affected by the changed cell style.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

The CellStyleContentChanged event occurs when a property value of a DataGridViewCellStyle object returned by one of the following properties changes:

If one of these properties is set to a different DataGridViewCellStyle object, however, the corresponding PropertyNameChanged event occurs but the CellStyleContentChanged event does not occur.

Use the CellStyleScope property to determine which property has the DataGridViewCellStyle that changed. Use the CellStyle property to retrieve the updated value.

For more information about handling events, see NIB: Consuming Events.

Legacy Code Example

The following code example demonstrates the use of this type. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the CellStyleContentChanged 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 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 CellStyleContentChanged event.

private void DataGridView1_CellStyleContentChanged(Object sender, DataGridViewCellStyleContentChangedEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "CellStyle", e.CellStyle );
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "CellStyleScope", e.CellStyleScope );
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "CellStyleContentChanged Event" );
