Visual C# | Introduction to DataGridViews exercise | Creating and formatting a DataGridView
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
First make sure that you have created a data source to access the tables in the Mortgage database in the above folder, then create a form called frmMortgageTypes.
Add a DataGridView to your form to show mortgage type records from the MortgageType table, and format it to look interesting!
Hopefully you'll display more taste than this
Remember to unset the form's EnableHeadersVisualStyle property to get the row and column header formats to display.
Make the following tweaks
- Set the Anchor property of the DataGridView to make it "stretchy"; and
- Set the AutoSizeMode property of the right-most column to make it fill the space at the right of the DataGridView .
When you're happy with how your DataGridView looks, close down the form.
