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

public object FalseValue { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object

An Object corresponding to a cell value of false. The default is null.

The FalseValue, TrueValue, and IndeterminateValue properties determine the associated values of these states as they occur in the underlying data source.

Setting the FalseValue property of the owning column also sets the FalseValue property of every cell in the column and refreshes the column display. To override the specified value for individual cells, set the cell values after you set the column value.

The following code example uses a DataGridViewCheckBoxCell to track the status of office lighting. The FalseValue property associates "turnedOff" with false, the TrueValue property associates "turnedOn" with true, and the IndeterminateValue property associates "unknown" to indeterminate.
