Below is my code that i have so far as well as a picture of what it is doing. What i would like is for the columns to automatically be one size so they fill the entire dark grey area in

So I need everything to i guess "stretch" out to fill althe grey space. The table is created from the code below so i cannot just assign the column widths in properties.
Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
        Dim studentnumber As String = TextBox1.Text
        Dim xdoc As System.Xml.Linq.XDocument
        xdoc = System.Xml.Linq.XDocument.Load("c:\test.gpc")
        Dim studentQuery = From student In xdoc.Descendants("Student") _
                           Where student.Element("StudentID") = studentnumber _
                          Select New With _
                          { _
                            .Name = student.Element("StudentName").Value, _
                            .StudentID = student.Element("StudentID").Value, _
                            .Image = student.Element("Image").Value, _
                            .Location = student.Element("Location").Value _
                                  }
        Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = studentQuery.ToList()
    End Sub
    Private Sub DataGridView1_DataBindingComplete(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewBindingCompleteEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.DataBindingComplete
        Me.DataGridView1.Columns("Name").DisplayIndex = 0
        Me.DataGridView1.Columns("StudentID").DisplayIndex = 1
        Me.DataGridView1.Columns("Image").DisplayIndex = 2
        Me.DataGridView1.Columns("Location").DisplayIndex = 3
    End Sub
