Hello:
I am trying to setup the width of my id column in a datagrid view.  I keep getting errors like "index was out of range" eventhough my grid has 10 columns and I want to hide the last column setting up the width to 0.  What am i doing wrong?  Please see code below.  Thank you.

Private Sub frmShowAllProspects_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim sqlConnection As SqlConnection
        Dim sqlCommand As SqlCommand
        Dim dt As New DataTable


        sqlConnection = New SqlConnection("Connection String")
        sqlCommand = New SqlCommand("ssmc_te_getprospecthistorybyduetocontact", sqlConnection)
        sqlCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure

        Dim da As SqlDataAdapter
        da = New SqlDataAdapter(sqlCommand)
        Me.mydgCustomer.Columns(9).Width = 0

       
        da.Fill(dt)

        mydgCustomer.DataSource = dt


    End Sub

Me.mydgCustomer.Columns(9) does not exist ... you may validate if the lenght of Me.mydgCustomer.Columns is > 9 before setting the width

you should also fill and bind the datagrid and then after set the width.

Like that :

Private Sub frmShowAllProspects_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim sqlConnection As SqlConnection
        Dim sqlCommand As SqlCommand
        Dim dt As New DataTable


        sqlConnection = New SqlConnection("Connection String")
        sqlCommand = New SqlCommand("ssmc_te_getprospecthistorybyduetocontact", sqlConnection)
        sqlCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure

        Dim da As SqlDataAdapter
        da = New SqlDataAdapter(sqlCommand)
        da.Fill(dt)

        mydgCustomer.DataSource = dt

        Me.mydgCustomer.Columns(9).Width = 0


    End Sub

Put this line:

Me.mydgCustomer.Columns(9).Width = 0

after this line:

mydgCustomer.DataSource = dt

You are setting the width of your datagridview before assigning it columns,thus the grid has no column 9 yet!
