DataGridViewBand.DefaultCellStyle Property

Gets or sets the default cell style of the band.

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

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public virtual DataGridViewCellStyle DefaultCellStyle { get; set; }

The default cell style is applied to cells that do not have an associated style. When getting this property, a DataGridViewCellStyle with default values will be created if the default cell style does not exist.

The following code example sets the default cell style for the first column in a DataGridView.


// Freeze the first row.
private void Button4_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    FreezeBand(dataGridView.Rows[0]);
}

private void Button5_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    FreezeBand(dataGridView.Columns[1]);
}

private static void FreezeBand(DataGridViewBand band)
{
    band.Frozen = true;
    DataGridViewCellStyle style = new DataGridViewCellStyle();
    style.BackColor = Color.WhiteSmoke;
    band.DefaultCellStyle = style;
}
