2 mins read


When the border margin size is more than the text size, the text is cut off on display in WinForms Grid.

The following image shows the text cut off.

To avoid this problem of the text being cut off, use the Font.Unit property in the QueryCellStyleInfo event, and set the value to GraphicsUnit.World.


grid.QueryCellStyleInfo+=new GridTableCellStyleInfoEventHandler(grid_QueryCellStyleInfo);
e.Style.Font.Unit = GraphicsUnit.World;


AddHandler grid.QueryCellStyleInfo, AddressOf grid_QueryCellStyleInfo
e.Style.Font.Unit = GraphicsUnit.World

After applying the properties, the Grid is displayed as follows.
