The RowStyle class represents the user interface (UI) characteristics of a row in a TableLayoutPanel. The styles for all the rows in a TableLayoutPanel are collected in the TableLayoutPanel.RowStyles property.

This simple class offers the Height and SizeType for a row.

The following code example demonstrates how to extract a RowStyle from a TableLayoutRowStyleCollection.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TableLayoutPanel class.

  private void toggleRowStylesBtn_Click(
System.Object sender, 
System.EventArgs e)
TableLayoutRowStyleCollection styles = 

      foreach( RowStyle style in styles )
          if (style.SizeType==SizeType.Absolute)
              style.SizeType = SizeType.AutoSize;
          else if(style.SizeType==SizeType.AutoSize)
              style.SizeType = SizeType.Percent;

              // Set the row height to be a percentage
              // of the TableLayoutPanel control's height.
              style.Height = 33;

              // Set the row height to 50 pixels.
              style.SizeType = SizeType.Absolute;
              style.Height = 50;
