DataGridViewColumn.Resizable Property


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the column is resizable.

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

public override DataGridViewTriState Resizable { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewTriState

One of the DataGridViewTriState values. The default is True.

If the Resizable property is False, the user will not be able to manually adjust the column width.

By default, the Resizable property value is based on the DataGridView.AllowUserToResizeColumns property value. If you explicitly set Resizable to True or False, however, the control value is ignored. Set Resizable to NotSet to restore the value-inheritance behavior.

Because NotSet restores the value inheritance, the Resizable property will never return a NotSet value unless the column has not been added to a DataGridView control. If you need to determine whether the Resizable property value of a column is inherited, check its State property. If the State property value includes the ResizableSet flag, the Resizable property value is not inherited.

The following code example uses this property to fix the size of the third column so that the user cannot change the column width.

dataGridView1.Columns[2].Resizable =
