I've a DataGridView where the header texts aren't correctly centered, as you can see by the picture. I've the following code for my DataGridView. Why does this happens?

Thanks for your help.

jppinto
Me.grdMissingParts.RowHeadersWidth = 25
Me.grdMissingParts.ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
Me.grdMissingParts.Columns("Part Number").Width = 150
Me.grdMissingParts.Columns("Part Number").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
Me.grdMissingParts.Columns("Descrição").Width = 250
Me.grdMissingParts.Columns("Descrição").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
Me.grdMissingParts.Columns("URQ").Width = 60
Me.grdMissingParts.Columns("URQ").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
Me.grdMissingParts.Columns("Paragem").Width = 60
Me.grdMissingParts.Columns("Paragem").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter

Hi jppinto,
Do you mean the column "URQ" ? Don't you have spaces in the column name ?

No, I don't have spaces in the column name. The problem is with the first 3 columns name as you can see by the picture, they are not well centered.

Strange ... Try this snippet after your code
        For Each col As DataGridViewColumn In Me.DataGridView1.Columns
            col.HeaderText = col.HeaderText.ToString.Trim
        Next

Solved!

The column header cells reserves space for the sort glyph when calculating center justification. I had to disable sorting on the columns so that the alignment looks centered. Like this:

Me.grdMissingParts.Columns("Part Number").SortMode = DataGridViewColumnSortMode.NotSortable
