Defines values for specifying how the height of the column headers is adjusted.

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

type DataGridViewColumnHeadersHeightSizeMode

Member nameDescription
EnableResizingUsers can adjust the column header height with the mouse.
DisableResizingUsers cannot adjust the column header height with the mouse.
AutoSizeThe column header height adjusts to fit the contents of all the column header cells.

By default, users can resize the height of the column headers. You can disable this ability to set a fixed height or you can use the automatic sizing mode to fit the height to the header contents. Automatic sizing also disables user resizing.

This enumeration is used by the DataGridView control ColumnHeadersHeightSizeMode property and AutoResizeColumnHeadersHeight method.

For more information about sizing modes, see Sizing Options in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

The following code example illustrates the use of this enumeration in a display-only, non-interactive DataGridView control.
