The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the column Text property value is displayed as the link text.

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

public bool UseColumnTextForLinkValue { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the column Text property value is displayed as the link text; false if the cell FormattedValue property value is displayed as the link text. The default is false.

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