How to change the GridLineColor dynamically in WinForms GridControl?

1 min read

Change the border style

By default, the border style is dotted lines and the border color is gray. The border color and style is applied based on the GridVisualStyles.


To change the border line color of the Grid dynamically in WinForms GridControl, use the GridLineColor property. By using this property, you can set all sides (Left, Right, Bottom, and Top) border styles of Grid. This is applied only when you set the border style using DefaultGridBorderStyle to ‘Solid’. Refer to the following code example.


//Setting border line color
this.grid.GridLineColor = Color.Red;
//Setting border style to solid
this.grid.DefaultGridBorderStyle = GridBorderStyle.Solid;


'Setting border line color
Me.grid.GridLineColor = Color.Red
'Setting border style to solid
Me.grid.DefaultGridBorderStyle = GridBorderStyle.Solid

The following screenshot illustrates the output.
