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

public Object FormattedValue { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object
The formatted value of the current DataGridViewCell.

The FormattedValue property contains the value of the cell after the Format or FormatProvider property has been applied to it, and after the CellFormatting event has been handled.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the DataGridView.CellPainting event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type DataGridView named DataGridView1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the DataGridView.CellPainting event.

private void DataGridView1_CellPainting(Object sender, DataGridViewCellPaintingEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "AdvancedBorderStyle", e.AdvancedBorderStyle );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "CellBounds", e.CellBounds );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "CellStyle", e.CellStyle );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ClipBounds", e.ClipBounds );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ColumnIndex", e.ColumnIndex );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ErrorText", e.ErrorText );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "FormattedValue", e.FormattedValue );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "PaintParts", e.PaintParts );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "RowIndex", e.RowIndex );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "State", e.State );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Value", e.Value );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Handled", e.Handled );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "CellPainting Event" );
}
