Setting visual properties with DataGrid

Hey all,

This is probably a real simple question but I couldn't figure out how to do this :/

Anyway I am trying to format my header row in a DataGrid but can't seem to work out how to set all the properties I want.  I have listed the properties below and would really appreciate if you could please provide some sample code that will format the text accordingly.

The settings I would like are:

Font - Arial
Font size - 16
Font settings - Bold
Column width - Width of Datagrid / 7 (Which is how many columns I have)

Thanks!

Dwayne

something like this

        DataGrid1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)

        Dim f As New System.Drawing.Font("Arial", 16.0F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Bold, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, CType(0, System.Byte))
        DataGrid1.HeaderFont = f
        Dim grdTableStyle1 As New DataGridTableStyle
        grdTableStyle1.MappingName = ds.Tables(0).TableName
        grdTableStyle1.HeaderFont = f
        DataGrid1.TableStyles.Add(grdTableStyle1)
        For x As Integer = 0 To ds.Tables(0).Columns.Count - 1
            DataGrid1.TableStyles(0).GridColumnStyles(x).Width = CInt(DataGrid1.Width / (ds.Tables(0).Columns.Count))
        Next

although this

Column width - Width of Datagrid / 7 (Which is how many columns I have)

won't give you the result you where looking for look here for a better solution
