Hi PaulHews,

The code is really huge. Are there any simpler alternatives to achieve the goal?

I don't believe there are, aside from third party grids.  There is a project on CodeProject which has compiled similar code into a library:

Generic DataGridView V2.0

It seems well received by some, but I've never used it.
