DataGridViewElementStates Enumeration

Specifies the user interface (UI) state of a element within a DataGridView control.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

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

public enum DataGridViewElementStates

Member nameDescription
NoneIndicates that an element is in its default state.
DisplayedIndicates the an element is currently displayed onscreen.
FrozenIndicates that an element cannot be scrolled through the UI.
ReadOnlyIndicates that an element will not accept user input to change its value.
ResizableIndicates that an element can be resized through the UI. This value is ignored except when combined with the ResizableSet value.
ResizableSetIndicates that an element does not inherit the resizable state of its parent.
SelectedIndicates that an element is in a selected (highlighted) UI state.
VisibleIndicates that an element is visible (displayable).

Although these different states, like Frozen, are enforced by the UI, they can be programmatically overruled.
