public Color LinkColor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color

A Color that represents the color used to initially display a link. The default value is the user's Internet Explorer setting for the link color.

Setting the LinkColor property of the owning column also sets the LinkColor 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.LinkColor 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);
}
