How to put a grid on a form in WinForms GridControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl

Adding GridControl through designer and code

Step 1: Through Designer

First, make sure you have added both the Syncfusion.Shared.Base, namespace: Syncfusion.Windows.Forms and Syncfusion.Grid.Windows, namespace: Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid, controls to your Toolbox. You can do this by right-clicking your Toolbox and selecting all the components in these namespaces that you can find listed under the .NET Framework Components.

Once you have the Syncfusion components in your Toolbox, you can drag and drop the GridControl component onto your form. Then you can edit the RowCount and ColCount properties of the GridControl to set the number of rows and columns.

Step 2: Through Code

By using the following code examples, you can add a Grid in a Form.


using Syncfusion.Drawing;
using Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid;
gridControl1 = new GridControl();
gridControl1.ColCount = 20;
gridControl1.RowCount = 40;
gridControl1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(40, 20);
gridControl1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(424, 240);
//add the grid to the Form’s control list
this.Controls.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.Control[] { this.gridControl1 });


Imports Syncfusion.Drawing;
Imports Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid
gridControl1 = New GridControl()
gridControl1.ColCount = 20
gridControl1.RowCount = 40
gridControl1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(40, 20)
gridControl1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(424, 240)
'add the grid to the Form’s control list
Me.Controls.AddRange(New System.Windows.Forms.Control() { Me.gridControl1 })
