Property Value


One of the DataGridViewTriState values. The default is NotSet.


The property value is not a valid DataGridViewTriState value.


The following code example illustrates the use of this property.

this.dataGridView1.DefaultCellStyle.WrapMode =
Me.dataGridView1.DefaultCellStyle.WrapMode = DataGridViewTriState.True


If WrapMode is False for a cell that contains text, the cell displays the text on a single line, and displays any embedded newline characters as box characters. If WrapMode is True for a cell that contains text, the cell displays newline characters as line breaks, but also wraps any lines that exceed the width of the cell.
