In Microsoft Windows XP, when you add a row to a DataGridView object in a Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0-based application, use of graphics device interface (GDI) objects increases by two objects.

Note This problem only occurs if you enable the Microsoft Windows XP theme.


This problem occurs because DataGridView object was originally designed to store the header bitmaps. This design causes two GDI objects to be consumed for each row in the DataGridView object.
