Gets or sets the image layout in the cells for this column.

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

public DataGridViewImageCellLayout ImageLayout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewImageCellLayout

A DataGridViewImageCellLayout that specifies the cell layout. The default is Normal.

Exception Condition
InvalidOperationException

The value of the CellTemplate property is null.

Getting or setting this property gets or sets the ImageLayout property of the object returned by the CellTemplate property. Setting this property also sets the ImageLayout property of every cell in the column and refreshes the column display. To override the specified value for individual cells, set the cell values after you set the column value.

The following code example demonstrates how to stretch and zoom images to fit cells. This example is part of a larger example available in How to: Work with Image Columns in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

private void Stretch(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    foreach (DataGridViewImageColumn column in
        dataGridView1.Columns)
    {
        column.ImageLayout = DataGridViewImageCellLayout.Stretch;
        column.Description = "Stretched";
    }
}

private void ZoomToImage(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

    foreach (DataGridViewImageColumn column in
        dataGridView1.Columns)
    {
        column.ImageLayout = DataGridViewImageCellLayout.Zoom;
        column.Description = "Zoomed";
    }
}

private void NormalImage(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

    foreach (DataGridViewImageColumn column in
        dataGridView1.Columns)
    {
        column.ImageLayout = DataGridViewImageCellLayout.Normal;
        column.Description = "Normal";
    }
}
