Datagrid Column header size extending to anchored position?

I have a datagrid that is populated with data. I have the grid anchored to the right. When I open the form in my application I can re-size the window and the datagrid expands to the right. The buttons of the datagrid (add, remove, etc) all resize to fit as well.

The problem is, the last column does not stretch to fit the datagrid. It's a text field called "Summary". This column has a set width of 120 as defined by the table style for the datagrid. Despite the datagrid resizing, it does not stretch the end of this column when you resize the window.

Does anyone know how I can accomplish this?

You can use a table style, and define column widths based on a percentage of grid width, instead of fixed pixels.

style.ColumnWidth = Me.DataGrid1.Width * .3
