Hi

I am using the following code to set the font in a DataGridView cell using the Fony Dialog.
The FontDialog also has Style (eg Bold) and Size. Is it possible to apply these to the DataGridView cell too? If so, what similar code would I use? Thanks

    Me.DataGridView1.Rows(oRowIndex).Cells(1).Style.Font = Me.FontDialog1.Font

I tried
    Me.DataGridView1.Rows(oRowIndex).Cells(1).Style.Font.Size = Me.FontDialog1.Font.Size
but get an error that "Property Size is read only"
