The following code example adds a vertical edge after the third column. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewColumn class.

// Set the vertical edge.
void Button7_Click( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   int thirdColumn = 2;
   //        int edgeThickness = 5;
   DataGridViewColumn^ column = dataGridView->Columns[ thirdColumn ];
   column->DividerWidth = 10;
// Set the vertical edge.
private void Button7_Click(object sender,
    System.EventArgs e)
    int thirdColumn = 2;
    DataGridViewColumn column =
    column.DividerWidth = 10;
' Set the vertical edge.
Private Sub Button7_Click(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button7.Click

    Dim thirdColumn As Integer = 2
    Dim column As DataGridViewColumn = _
    column.DividerWidth = 10

End Sub


This property is useful to provide a visual boundary between frozen columns and columns that can scroll. The extra edge is part of the current column, although it will take on the foreground color of the associated DataGridView. The extra edge does not extend the area in which users can double-click to automatically resize a column. To resize a column, the user must double-click on the boundary between the divider and the adjacent column.
