ColumnBase.CellStyle Property

Gets or sets the style of cells displayed within this column. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v21.1.Core.dll

Declaration

public Style CellStyle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description
Style

The style of cells displayed within this column.

Remarks

Important

To format grid cells based on specific conditions, use Conditional Formatting to gain better performance. Refer to the following topic for more information - How to Conditionally Set Background and Foreground for Grid Rows and Cells.

The CellStyle property specifies a theme-independent style applied to cells within the current column. To specify a cell style for all columns, use the DataViewBase.CellStyle property. When both these properties are set, ColumnBase.CellStyle has higher priority.

To specify the styles applied to the column’s data cell displayed within the New Item Row and Automatic Filter Row, use the ColumnBase.NewItemRowCellStyle and ColumnBase.AutoFilterRowCellStyle properties.

TargetType

Optimized Mode

In optimized mode (the default setting), set TargetType to LightweightCellEditor.

<dxg:GridColumn>
    <dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:LightweightCellEditor" />
    </dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
</dxg:GridColumn>
...
<dxg:TableView>
    <dxg:TableView.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:LightweightCellEditor" />
    </dxg:TableView.CellStyle>
</dxg:TableView>

Non-optimized Mode

If you disable the optimized mode, set TargetType to CellContentPresenter.

<dxg:GridColumn>
    <dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:CellContentPresenter" />
    </dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
</dxg:GridColumn>
...
<dxg:TableView>
    <dxg:TableView.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:CellContentPresenter" />
    </dxg:TableView.CellStyle>
</dxg:TableView>

Data Binding

Cell elements contain EditGridCellData objects in their DataContext.

Use the following binding paths to access cell values, columns, and ViewModel properties:

  • Value - access the current cell value;
  • Column - access the current column;
  • RowData.Row.[YourPropertyName] - access a property of an object from the ItemsSource collection;
  • Data.[FieldName] - access column values in Server Mode, access unbound column values;
  • View.DataContext.[YourPropertyName] - access a property in a grid’s ViewModel.
