DataGridViewColumn.Frozen Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether a column will move when a user scrolls the DataGridView control horizontally.

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

public override bool Frozen { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true to freeze the column; otherwise, false.

When a column is frozen, all the columns to its left (or to its right in right-to-left languages) are frozen as well. The frozen and unfrozen columns form two groups. If column repositioning is enabled by setting the AllowUserToOrderColumns property to true, the user cannot drag a column from one group to the other.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DataGridViewBand.Frozen property, which is nearly identical to the Frozen property of the DataGridViewColumn class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewBand class.


// Freeze the first row.
private void Button4_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    FreezeBand(dataGridView.Rows[0]);
}

private void Button5_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    FreezeBand(dataGridView.Columns[1]);
}

private static void FreezeBand(DataGridViewBand band)
{
    band.Frozen = true;
    DataGridViewCellStyle style = new DataGridViewCellStyle();
    style.BackColor = Color.WhiteSmoke;
    band.DefaultCellStyle = style;
}
