DataGridTextBoxColumn

I have tried everything I know to get a textbox in a DataGridtextBoxColumn to word wrap, including setting wordwrap, multiline, alignment and scrollbars. Nothing works, I must be missing something. Can anyone help. Thanks Dave

Did you ever get an answer or figure this problem out? I am currently struggling with the same thing. The problem seems to the that the textbox property is a read only property so you can't just do this: dataGridTextBoxColumn.TextBox.WordWrap = true; This will just get you a copy and set the word wrap property in that copy. I understand the problem but a solution would sure be nice. > I have tried everything I know to get a textbox in a DataGridtextBoxColumn to word wrap, including setting wordwrap, multiline, alignment and scrollbars.

The following works find when the box is selected and the TextBox is created. Until the field is selected the text box does not exist. DataGridTextBoxColumn nameColumnStyle = new DataGridTextBoxColumn(); nameColumnStyle.TextBox.WordWrap=true; > Did you ever get an answer or figure this problem out?

I ended up putting in the following code for each datagridcolumn that I wanted upper under the initialize component. dataGridTextBoxColumn32.TextBox.CharacterCasing = CharacterCasing.Upper; > Did you ever get an answer or figure this problem out?
