How to achieve Column wrapping in the WinForms GridControl?

1 min read


The Column wrapping is achieved by using the WrapText property. It is used to apply the wrap text style to the particular cell, column or rows.

By using the GridModel


this.gridControl1[0, 2].CellValue = "Wrap";
this.gridControl1.ColStyles[2].CellValue = " Wrapped text is shown";
// apply wrap text for the column
this.gridControl1.ColStyles[2].WrapText = true;



this.gridControl1[0, 2].CellValue = "Wrap";
Me.gridControl1.ColStyles(2).CellValue = "Wrapped text is shown"
' apply wrap text for the column
Me.gridControl1.ColStyles(2).WrapText = True

By using the QueryCellInfo event


void gridControl1_QueryCellInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
     if (e.ColIndex == 2 && e.RowIndex>0)
          // apply wrap text for the column
          e.Style.WrapText = true;
          e.Style.CellValue = "Wrapped Text is Shown";



Private Sub gridControl1_QueryCellInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs)
     If e.ColIndex = 2 AndAlso e.RowIndex > 0 Then
          ' apply wrap text for the column
          e.Style.WrapText = True
          e.Style.CellValue = "Wrapped Text is Shown"
     End If
End Sub



By default, the WrapText is set to true for all the columns.
