Public Property CellStyle As Style

Property Value

Type Description
Style

A Style object that represents the style of cells displayed within this column.

Remarks

The CellStyle property specifies the style that groups together properties, resources, and event handlers and shares them between instances of the target type.

Target Type:

The example below demonstrates how to define a CellStyle.

<dxg:GridColumn FieldName="Name">
    <dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:LightweightCellEditor" />
    </dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
</dxg:GridColumn>
NOTE

In versions prior to v18.2, you have to add the CellStyle, specifying the style's BasedOn property:

<dxg:GridColumn FieldName="Name">
    <dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
        <Style TargetType="dxg:LightweightCellEditor" 
               BasedOn="{StaticResource {dxgt:GridRowThemeKey ResourceKey=LightweightCellStyle}}" />
    </dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
</dxg:GridColumn>

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

The GridControl's CellStyle property is theme dependent. Create a new style based on the existing cell style to apply a CellStyle. E.g., if you are using the MetropolisDark theme, your style's BasedOn property should be set to the following value:

<dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
    <Style TargetType="dxg:LightweightCellEditor" 
           BasedOn="{StaticResource {dxgt:GridRowThemeKey ResourceKey=LightweightCellStyle, ThemeName=MetropolisDark}}"/>
</dxg:GridColumn.CellStyle>
