autosize DataGrid column

I'm using Visual Studio 2003. Is there a way one can cause columns in a
DataGrid to autosize? Also, is there a way to cause the last column to take
up the remaining space between the end of the column and the right edge of
the DataGrid? And finally, is there a way to remove the row that permits a
user to add data? I looked in the Help, but was unable to discern the
answers to the aforementioned questions.

Tim,

I don't think there is a way to perform the sizing operations you
specified. If anything, you would have to perform all of the calculations
yourself, and then apply it to the size.

As for removing the final row that permists a user to add data, bind to
a DataView on your table, setting the AllowNew property on the view to
false.

Hope this helps.

There's nothing build into the .Net Framework which does the Auto-size.
However, there was an article about in of CodeProject.com some time ago.

Hello, Do you know why in the following code the result is a column of size 0 ? (in the doc it says to use -2 to autosize column header...) ColumnHeader MyColumnHeader = new ColumnHeader(); MyColumnHeader.Text = "col1"; MyColumnHeader.Width = -2; // if you remove this line col appears MyListView.Columns.Add(MyColumnHeader);

Can anyone confirm whether or not there are any limits imposed on the widths of autosized columns in a list-view. I've found that the autosizing appears to have an upper limit, i.e. it will not expand beyond some (unknown) maximum length. This applies to user-autosizing (double-clicking the divider) and code-autosizing using LVSCW_AUTOSIZE. For example, create a new project and place a ListView (VB5 version) and CommandButton on a form...

How do I get a CELL to autosize a round a Control in a HTML Table? For example, you add a 2 row, 3 column HTML table to your webpage.
