DataGridViewLinkCell.ActiveLinkColor Property

Gets or sets the color used to display an active link.

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

public Color ActiveLinkColor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color
A Color that represents the color used to display a link that is being selected. The default value is the user's Internet Explorer setting for the color of links in the hover state.

Setting the ActiveLinkColor property of the owning column also sets the ActiveLinkColor 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 the use of the DataGridViewLinkColumn.ActiveLinkColor property, which is similar to this property. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewComboBoxColumn class overview topic.


private void AddLinkColumn()
{
    DataGridViewLinkColumn links = new DataGridViewLinkColumn();

    links.UseColumnTextForLinkValue = true;
    links.HeaderText = ColumnName.ReportsTo.ToString();
    links.DataPropertyName = ColumnName.ReportsTo.ToString();
    links.ActiveLinkColor = Color.White;
    links.LinkBehavior = LinkBehavior.SystemDefault;
    links.LinkColor = Color.Blue;
    links.TrackVisitedState = true;
    links.VisitedLinkColor = Color.YellowGreen;

    DataGridView1.Columns.Add(links);
}
