DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventArgs.DrawFocus Method

Draws the focus rectangle around the specified bounds.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public void DrawFocus (
	Rectangle bounds,
	bool cellsPaintSelectionBackground
)
public void DrawFocus (
	Rectangle bounds, 
	boolean cellsPaintSelectionBackground
)
public function DrawFocus (
	bounds : Rectangle, 
	cellsPaintSelectionBackground : boolean
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

bounds

A Rectangle that specifies the focus area.

cellsPaintSelectionBackground

true to use the SelectionBackColor property of the DataGridViewRow.InheritedStyle property to determine the color of the focus rectangle; false to use the BackColor property of the DataGridViewRow.InheritedStyle property.

Exception typeCondition

InvalidOperationException

RowIndex is less than zero or greater than the number of rows in the DataGridView control minus one.

Use the DrawFocus method when you draw the DataGridViewRow and its cells' contents yourself.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DrawFocus method to draw a focus around the visible cells of the row. This example is part of a larger example available in How to: Customize the Appearance of Rows in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

// Paints the content that spans multiple columns and the focus rectangle.
void dataGridView1_RowPostPaint(object sender,
    DataGridViewRowPostPaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Calculate the bounds of the row.
    Rectangle rowBounds = new Rectangle(
        this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth, e.RowBounds.Top,
        this.dataGridView1.Columns.GetColumnsWidth(
            DataGridViewElementStates.Visible) -
        this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset + 1,
        e.RowBounds.Height);

    SolidBrush forebrush = null;
    try
    {
        // Determine the foreground color.
        if ((e.State & DataGridViewElementStates.Selected) ==
            DataGridViewElementStates.Selected)
        {
            forebrush = new SolidBrush(e.InheritedRowStyle.SelectionForeColor);
        }
        else
        {
            forebrush = new SolidBrush(e.InheritedRowStyle.ForeColor);
        }

        // Get the content that spans multiple columns.
        object recipe =
            this.dataGridView1.Rows.SharedRow(e.RowIndex).Cells[2].Value;

        if (recipe != null)
        {
            String text = recipe.ToString();

            // Calculate the bounds for the content that spans multiple 
            // columns, adjusting for the horizontal scrolling position 
            // and the current row height, and displaying only whole
            // lines of text.
            Rectangle textArea = rowBounds;
            textArea.X -= this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset;
            textArea.Width += this.dataGridView1.HorizontalScrollingOffset;
            textArea.Y += rowBounds.Height - e.InheritedRowStyle.Padding.Bottom;
            textArea.Height -= rowBounds.Height -
                e.InheritedRowStyle.Padding.Bottom;
            textArea.Height = (textArea.Height / e.InheritedRowStyle.Font.Height) *
                e.InheritedRowStyle.Font.Height;

            // Calculate the portion of the text area that needs painting.
            RectangleF clip = textArea;
            clip.Width -= this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth + 1 - clip.X;
            clip.X = this.dataGridView1.RowHeadersWidth + 1;
            RectangleF oldClip = e.Graphics.ClipBounds;
            e.Graphics.SetClip(clip);

            // Draw the content that spans multiple columns.
            e.Graphics.DrawString(
                text, e.InheritedRowStyle.Font, forebrush, textArea);

            e.Graphics.SetClip(oldClip);
        }
    }
    finally
    {
        forebrush.Dispose();
    }

    if (this.dataGridView1.CurrentCellAddress.Y == e.RowIndex)
    {
        // Paint the focus rectangle.
        e.DrawFocus(rowBounds, true);
    }
}
