DataGridViewLinkColumn.VisitedLinkColor Property


Gets or sets the color used to display a link that has been previously visited.

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

public Color VisitedLinkColor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Color

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

Exception Condition

The value of the CellTemplate property is null.

If the TrackVisitedState property is set to false, the VisitedLinkColor property is ignored.

Getting or setting this property gets or sets the VisitedLinkColor property of the object returned by the CellTemplate property. Setting this property also sets the VisitedLinkColor 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 initializes this property so that the link is yellow-green if the user has visited it. 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;
