A Style object contains all the information necessary for formatting a grid cell. A style consists of several attributes such as the text color, borders, control type, and font attributes. These styles can be modified by the end user using a .NET property grid.

An important feature of GridControl is its support for combining style objects. For example, you can copy only those attributes from one style to another style that are not initialized in the other style. This feature enables a kind of inheritance. By specifying a base style, GridControl inherits attributes from the base style at run time.

Base styles make it possible to group specific kinds of cells and give them similar attributes. The predefined base styles are:

  • row-header-style
  • column-header-style
  • standard-style

Row header cells inherit their attributes from row-header-style. Column headers inherit from column-header-style. standard-style is the base style for all cells in the grid.

Properties in the Style class are combined with an include-bit. This include-bit is true when an attribute is initialized and false if the attribute is not initialized. When the grid is drawn uninitialized, style properties of the cell's style object are filled with the base style's properties. If the Include<*> properties are false, Stingray Grid .NET tries to initialize the properties with the base style's setting. If Include<*> properties return true, the specific setting is used for drawing.

Note Note
The values returned from Style properties are to be considered valid ONLY if the corresponding Include<*> property returns true. For example, the value of the ReadOnly property is valid ONLY if the IncludeReadOnly property is true.

Most of the properties of a Style can be configured at design time in the designer property grid. However, at this time, the following properties can be configured only at run time through source code manipulation:
