Adjusting column widths fr a DataGrid

Posted on 2006-11-04

Here's the code I use to format the columns:

driverStatData = new DataSet();
driverStatTable = new DataTable("DriverStatsTable");
driverStatTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Statistic", typeof(string)));
driverStatTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Col 1", typeof(double)));
driverStatTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Col 2", typeof(double)));
driverStatTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Percent", typeof(string)));

How do I give the first column more width?
