Autosize DataGrid columns

After filling data from a SQL server into a DataTable in a DataSet, I set a
DataGrid.DataSo urce to point to the DataTable. The grid displays the data
but all the columns are the same size. How do I get the colums to adjust
their width automatically so that the user does not have to double-click the
columns header border.

I would apreciate any help.
I'm using VisualBasic .NET v7 - 2003

Thanks

you need to look at DataGrid.TableS tyles property (if you are talking Win
form DataGrid).

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

Trying to figure out the technique which should be used to add rows to a datagrid. I am thinking that I would want an "Add" button on the footer, but I am not quite sure how to do that. Is that the best method? Do you have a sample of how to do this?

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. In the 1st row, you set the colspan=3, then delete the excess columns. Now the 1st row should look like it has only 1 cell, and the 2nd row has 3 cells. Now add a Web Forms DataGrid in row, and add a Web Forms Button in the middle cell of row 2. Now, when I try to resize the row, I can’t seem to get...
