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 Overrides Property Frozen As Boolean

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 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
