Hi guys 'n gals,

Is it at all possible to force a column in a DataGridView to stay at a certain width, so that the user cannot manually resize it? If so, what code do I need to do this?


Cheers!

To keep the user from being able to resize it:
DataGridView.AllowUserToResizeColumns = false;

To set the width to a particular size:
DataGridView.Columns["TargetColumn"].Width = 100;

Brilliant, wasn't sure if I could do that for a specific column or if it would have to be the entire DataGridView, thanks once again!
