Data Grid View Button Column Style RRS feed

  • Question

  • i'm using a data grid view to show some data. The style is configured so there is no border, or grid lines, or header styles. I would also like to add a button column. When doing this I select button flat appearance as flat, but I do not seem to be able to remove the border around the button, or even set it to the same as the background colour (white).

    Ideally I would like the button to have a small margin between it and the cell.

    You will not see this margin until you select the row; when the row is highlighted the button will remain white, but the cell back ground will change colour - if that makes sense!

    if anyone could point me in the right direction that would be most appreciated!

    Failing that is it possible to just add a standard button control to a cell?

  • Hello,

    The following project provides a custom button for a DataGridView which might provide ideas into custom painting but is not going to be correct to your requirements, only a starting point.
