VirtualTreeView - no of columns based on width

I have a Properties grid (VirtualTreeView) and it can hold from 5 - 50 lines... in 2 columns: Property, Value. The thing is that this info is for a selected object from the main grid, and since Properties grid has just a portion of screen space below the main grid, I would like to explore options how to better display Properties grid if the screen is wide enough to hold data in 4,6 or 8 columns instead of just 2.

So, Property colomn is width = 100, Value column width = 100. this is only 200 width per row. And if we have 30 lines, now you need to scroll, as only 5-8 rows fit on the screen. I would like to change the grid to show 10 columns (5 x Property & Value columns), if the screen width is > 5x200 - 1000, which usually is. So, I need to change from 1x30 (Prop&Value columns x rows) grid into 5x6 (5x Prop&Value columns, 6 rows) and all data is visible without any scrolling up and down.

I'm attaching screenshot from Excel for better understanding. So, if I have more screen space, I would like to display data in more columns and less rows, and that it is dinamyc on resizing form.

Thank you for your help!

Attached file to show a design instead of just 2 columns, of 5x2 columns if the screen is wide enough. If it's only wide enough for 4 columns, then display in 4 columns.

This is current solution:

I have 2 data sets, first one is the data I want to display, the second one is 'visual' data - what  I display. And OnResize I calculate the number of columns I can fit in the width of TreeView and based on this number I populate data into visual data set, so it is evenly distributed over rows and columns.
Works good, for now.
