Hello all! I'm trying to create a seamless grid view to display data within my C# application. I want to be able to see the numbers on top of my background image- no gridlines or boxes, etc. Just the number display.

Any ideas?

I appreciate your time in advance,

Which platform (Windows or Web) you want to use?

Seamless (noun) - Used to describe a situation where everyone is told it will work perfectly, when in fact it's an unmitigated clusterfuck.

Right-click on DataGridView control, click "Properties", find "CellBorderStyle" and set to "None" ... see if that takes care of it.

Funny thing I came across this question today as I am currently working on an A* variation Grid-Search to teach my students next week... Just for testing purposes I made a WinForm with a FlowLayoutPanel control that was 400 x 400 and divided it into and 8x8 Grid resulting in a 50x50 Cell.

I then wrote the following code to populate the panel.
protected List<string> Colors;
protected Color RandomColor()
    Color ret;
    /* Truncated Code */
    return ret;
private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    Colors = new List<string>();
    Grid8x8.Margin = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0);
    Grid8x8.Padding = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0);
    Grid8x8.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.FixedSingle;

private void Initialize()
    int i;
    for (i = 0; i < 64; i++)
        cell = new Label();
        cell.Text = i.ToString();
        cell.AutoSize = false;
        cell.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.None;
        cell.TextAlign = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter;
        cell.Width = 50;
        cell.Height = 50;
        cell.Margin = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0);

        currentColor = RandomColor();
        previousColor = currentColor;

        cell.BackColor = currentColor;

Since the List is 0-based index instead of a multi-dimensional array its safe to say that if X == CurrentCellIndex then X + 8 will equal the Cell Directly below the CurrentCellIndex.

Hope this helps,
