Hi

I would like to remove the horizontal scroll bar from a datgrid which has a datatable as its datasource (within a windows app - vb.net).  I have 9 columns in total but of these 9, 3 of there widths are set to 0 from within a tablestyle but the datagrid still insists on going to the full width of what it should be.

any help urgently would be greatly appreciated

thanks

matt

If you used a derived DataGrid, you can access the HorizScrollBar by this.HorizScrollBar and do whatever you want to the bar.

Try this code

 DataGrid1.Controls(0).Height = 0

Hi,
I'm having the same problem the cafferm was having. prakash_prk solution worked great. However, if the user adjusts the columns to be wider the scroll bars don't show up. Is there any way around this.
