Cell padding and spacing

I'm trying to figure out how I can specify the cell padding and cell spacing properties, like you would with a regular HTML table. What I refer to as the cell padding is the amount of padded space within the cell to the cell border. What I refer to as cell spacing is the amount of space between the cells. If I set the BorderMargins property, I seem to get an appearance like the cell padding property - but not as I expect. As I increase the margins, the text within the cells is eventually hidden as the size of the margin is increased. I believe the expected behavior should be to increase the size of the cell so that the contents remain visible, no matter what margin size is specified. I'd also like to know how to cell the spacing between the cells. I cannot seem to find this property or documentation referring to it. Thanks!

Hi Paul, Did you try using the TextMargins Property? Arun

Hi Arun, Thanks for your reply. I missed the TextMargins property the first time around but when I tried it, I still had the same problem. Please see attached for a sample (screenshot included) -- hopefully I'm missing something simple! > Hi Paul, > > Did you try using the TextMargins Property? > Arun

In your sample, if you increase the size the rowheight of row 2, you will see the text with the extra space around it. It is the extra space that is causing the text to be clipped as it is drawn. if you add this line, the row height will auto size initially. this.gridControl1.RowHeights.ResizeToFit(GridRangeInfo.Col(2));
