I want an absolutely white datagridview with no lines, or headers.  I can set the header color to white, but it still shows as the control color.  I would like to do this via the properties instead of programmatically.

Win forms vb vs 2550

In the properties pane for the DataGridView:
     Set ColumnHeadersVisible to False
     Set BackgroundColor to Window
     Set GridColor to Window

You can also set the following properties:
     Set RowHeadersVisible to False
     Set SelectionMode to FullRowSelect    'If you want the whole row to be selected when clicked on.

Hope that helps.

thanks, but I want the header visible because I need the header text.  I just want it to be white and not look like a header.

Figured it out

EnableHeadersVisualStyles was set to true.  Apparently this uses the users computer settings instead of yours.

Thanks
