Gets or sets a value indicating whether a column will move when a user scrolls the DataGridView control horizontally.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
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 property of the DataGridViewColumn class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewBand class.
' Freeze the first row. Private Sub Button4_Click(ByVal sender As Object, _ ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button4.Click FreezeBand(dataGridView.Rows(0)) End Sub Private Sub FreezeColumn(ByVal sender As Object, _ ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button5.Click FreezeBand(dataGridView.Columns(1)) End Sub Private Shared Sub FreezeBand(ByVal band As DataGridViewBand) band.Frozen = True Dim style As DataGridViewCellStyle = New DataGridViewCellStyle() style.BackColor = Color.WhiteSmoke band.DefaultCellStyle = style End Sub
