The TableLayoutSettings class collects and manages the characteristics associated with the table layout scheme. This class is used internally by the TableLayoutPanel and ToolStrip classes, as well as the table layout engine. The TableLayoutSettings class is used by the layout engine to determine how to lay out the container's child controls.

The TableLayoutSettings class manages the following information:

  • The TableLayoutPanelGrowStyle being used.

  • The maximum number of columns and rows in the layout.

  • The collection of styles used for the contained columns and rows.

The following example shows how to initialize a TableLayoutSettings object for a TableLayoutPanel control. For a full code listing, see How to: Implement a Custom ToolStripRenderer.
