Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl

Font settings

To change a cell’s font, use the FaceName property of the font object for that cell. A cell’s font object is given by the font property of the cell’s style.


By using GridModel


//Set the particular fontfamily for the particular cell.
gridControl1[2,5].Font.Facename = "Arial";
gridControl1[2,5].Font.Bold = true;
gridControl1[2, 5].Font.Size = 9;
gridControl1[2, 5].Text = "Enjoy";



'Set the particular fontfamily for the particular cell.
gridControl1(2,5).Font.Facename = "Arial"
gridControl1(2,5).Font.Bold = True
gridControl1(2, 5).Font.Size = 9
gridControl1(2, 5).Text = "Enjoy"


By using QueryCellInfo Event


void gridControl1_QueryCellInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
 if (e.RowIndex > 0 && e.ColIndex > 0)
  e.Style.Text = "Enjoy";
  //Set the particular fontfamily for the particular cell.
  if (e.RowIndex == 2 && e.ColIndex == 3)
   e.Style.Font.Facename = "Arial";
   e.Style.Font.Bold = true;
   e.Style.Font.Size = 9;



Private Sub gridControl1_QueryCellInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs)
 If e.RowIndex > 0 AndAlso e.ColIndex > 0 Then
  e.Style.Text = "Enjoy"
 End If
 'Set the particular fontfamily for the particular cell.
 If e.RowIndex = 2 AndAlso e.ColIndex = 3 Then
  e.Style.Font.Facename = "Arial"
  e.Style.Font.Bold = True
  e.Style.Font.Size = 9
 End If
End Sub


After applying the properties, the grid cell is displayed as follows:
