Winforms datagrid - using one tablestyle for multiple grids

Hi,

I have a windows form containing multiple DataGrids. I want to be able to apply the same DataGridTableStyle to 3 of the DataGrids on my form but do not want to create a DataGridTableStyle via the Visual Studio .NET form designer for each one.

I have added the DataGridTableStyle to each DataGrid's TableStyles collection, but this does not seem to apply the style.

There is a "DataGrid" property for the DataGridTableStyle, but this can only be set to one particular DataGrid.

I have also tried creating individual DataGridTableStyle objects for each DataGrid and adding the same GridColumnStyles objects to each, but this has not worked either.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

U can do it via code like this. U can  have a public function which accepts the datagrid as parameter. U can then set the style
for that particular datagrid

Dim style as DataGridTableStyle

Public Function DatagridStyle(datagrid1 as DataGrid) as Boolean

      datagrid1 .TableStyles.Clear()

        style = Nothing
        style = New DataGridTableStyle
        datagrid1 .TableStyles.Add(style )
        style .MappingName = ""
        style .MappingName = dataTable.TableName
        style .GridColumnStyles.Clear()

// Continue with the modifications u want
End Function
