Hi

Just a quick question regarding DataGridViews,

Everytime i create a DGV the Headers are always indented slightly whereas the data in the table is not, is there a way to remove the indent or make the data in table indent to the same position?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Try making your column headers flat not raised and set the column header alignment to middle left.  I think that is about the best you can achieve.

If I understand your question correctly, you can adjust the left padding value on the DataGridView Column to indent the data.  

You can do this from DefaultCellStyle property of the DataGridView or on each individual Columns DefaultCellStyle property.

You can also do this in code:

        Dim newPadding As New Padding(10, 1, 0, 0)
        YourDataGridView.RowTemplate.DefaultCellStyle.Padding = newPadding


Hope this helps.

Regards,

Keith
