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"

Dim oFontName As String = Me.FontDialog1.Font.Name
                    Dim oFontSize As Integer = Me.FontDialog1.Font.Size
                    Dim oFontStyle As FontStyle = Me.FontDialog1.Font.Style
                    DataGridView1.Rows(oRowIndex).Cells(1).Style.Font = New Font(oFontName, oFontSize, oFontStyle)
                    'DataGridView1.Rows(oRowIndex).Cells(1).Style.Font = New Font("Arial", 12, FontStyle.Bold)
