Exception typeCondition


When setting this property, the row is in a DataGridView control and is a shared row.

This property is useful to provide a visual boundary between frozen rows and rows that can scroll. The extra edge is part of the current row, although it will take on the foreground color of the associated DataGridView. The extra edge does not extend the area in which users can double-click to automatically resize a row. To resize a row, the user must double-click on the boundary between the divider and the adjacent row.

The following code example modifies the height of a row's divider to provide emphasis.

// Set a thick horizontal edge.
private void Button7_Click(object sender,
    System.EventArgs e)
    int secondRow = 1;
    DataGridViewRow row = dataGridView.Rows[secondRow];
    row.DividerHeight = 10;
