Hi,

I have a datagridview with many columns and rows of data...

I just want each column width to be resized to the width of the longest value within that column (including headers) ...

How do I do this...?

Thanks...

Try this:
            Me.DataGridView1.AutoResizeColumns(DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.ColumnHeader)
            ' or
            Me.DataGridView1.AutoResizeColumnHeadersHeight()

You can use a logic in this way

1. Get all columns width into an arraylist

2. Sort the arraylist

3. get the maximum value

4. Assign to all columns

Mean while i will write the code

This is just an idea. I didnt check it. it maight have compiler errors.

Dim alWidth As New Arraylist

For Each oCol As GridviewColumn In GrdView.Columns

alwidth.Add(oCol.Width)
Next
alwidth.Sort()
Dim iMaxWidth As Integer = alwidth.item(alwidth.count - 1)

For Each oCol As GridviewColumn In GrdView.Columns

oCol.Width = iMaxWidth
Next

My solution also works
Me.DataGridView1.AutoResizeColumns(DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.ColumnHeader)
You just need to change to what you want. I have used ColumnHeader but you could change to AllCells
Thats a little unfair but it's your decision.
