This property enables you to determine when the sizing grip is displayed on the form. You can set this property to display the sizing grip or have it automatically displayed based on the setting of the FormBorderStyle property.

The following code example demonstrates how to hide the size grip for a Form when the Form is not resizable.

		private void ShowMyDialogBox()
		{
			Form myForm = new Form();
			myForm.Text = "My Form";
			myForm.SetBounds(20,20,300,300);
			myForm.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.FixedDialog;
			
			// Display the form with no grip since form is not resizable.
			myForm.SizeGripStyle = SizeGripStyle.Hide;

			myForm.MinimizeBox = false;
			myForm.MaximizeBox = false;
			myForm.ShowDialog();
		}
