DataGridViewRow.Resizable Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether users can resize the row or indicating that the behavior is inherited from the DataGridView.AllowUserToResizeRows property.

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

public override DataGridViewTriState Resizable { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewTriState
A DataGridViewTriState value that indicates whether the row can be resized or whether it can be resized only when the DataGridView.AllowUserToResizeRows property is set to true.


The row is in a DataGridView control and is a shared row.

You cannot use this property with a shared row. For more information about shared rows, see Best Practices for Scaling the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

If the Resizable property is False, the user will not be able to manually adjust the row height.

By default, the Resizable property value is based on the DataGridView.AllowUserToResizeRows property value. If you explicitly set Resizable to True or False, however, the control value is ignored. Set Resizable to NotSet to restore the value-inheritance behavior.

Because NotSet restores the value inheritance, the Resizable property will never return a NotSet value unless the row has not been added to a DataGridView control. If you need to determine whether the Resizable property value of a row is inherited or has been specified explicitly, check its State property. If the State value includes the ResizableSet flag, the Resizable property value is not inherited.

The following code example illustrates the use of this property.
