I'm going to write a program that has a data grid much like a tv listing guide, in which different shows have different lengths, but I don't know how to implement this.  The user will insert an the data for an object and its length and then be able to click on that object once it is in the table.  Any suggestions?  Thanks

I'd suggest using a repeater, that way you can have full freedom of configuring the HTML for the table.

To make differently-sized cells, you need to use the colspan property of <td>. You might need to set the colspan value dynamically using an asp command tag <%# %>
