ipaulino has just answered a previous question about my datagridview but using a GridLineDataGridView component.

I just can't find this on the Visual Studio toolbox anywhere. Could somebody point me in the right direction please??

Regards


Frustrated.

Hi again!

Add the code on the snippet to a new class (clean all code from the new class and paste the code snippet). Then build your project.

The component will be available on the top of the toolbox.
Class GridLineDataGridView
	Inherits DataGridView
 
	Protected Overloads Overrides Sub OnPaint(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)
		MyBase.OnPaint(e)
 
		Dim rowHeight As Integer = Me.RowTemplate.Height
		Dim h As Integer = Me.ColumnHeadersHeight + rowHeight * Me.RowCount
		Dim imgWidth As Integer = Me.Width - 2
		Dim rFrame As New Rectangle(0, 0, imgWidth, rowHeight)
		Dim rFill As New Rectangle(1, 1, imgWidth - 2, rowHeight)
		Dim rowHeader As New Rectangle(2, 2, Me.RowHeadersWidth - 3, rowHeight)
 
		Dim pen As New Pen(Me.GridColor, 1)
		Dim rowImg As New Bitmap(imgWidth, rowHeight)
		Dim g As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(rowImg)
		g.DrawRectangle(pen, rFrame)
		g.FillRectangle(New SolidBrush(Me.DefaultCellStyle.BackColor), rFill)
		g.FillRectangle(New SolidBrush(Me.RowHeadersDefaultCellStyle.BackColor), rowHeader)
 
		Dim rowImgAAlternative As Bitmap = TryCast(rowImg.Clone(), Bitmap)
		Dim g2 As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(rowImgAAlternative)
		rFill.X += Me.RowHeadersWidth - 1
		g2.FillRectangle(New SolidBrush(Me.AlternatingRowsDefaultCellStyle.BackColor), rFill)
 
		Dim w As Integer = Me.RowHeadersWidth - 1
		For j As Integer = 0 To Me.ColumnCount - 1
			g.DrawLine(pen, New Point(w, 0), New Point(w, rowHeight))
			g2.DrawLine(pen, New Point(w, 0), New Point(w, rowHeight))
			w += Me.Columns(j).Width
		Next
 
		Dim [loop] As Integer = (Me.Height - h) / rowHeight
		For j As Integer = 0 To [loop]
			Dim index As Integer = Me.RowCount + j
			If index Mod 2 = 0 Then
				e.Graphics.DrawImage(rowImg, 1, h + j * rowHeight)
			Else
				e.Graphics.DrawImage(rowImgAAlternative, 1, h + j * rowHeight)
			End If
		Next
 
	End Sub
 
End Class
