I have a VS C# 2008 application with a form that contains a data grid view. Is there anyway to force the vertical scroll bar to always appear on the datagridview? The window is large enough for 20 records. If there are more than 20 records to display the vertical scroll bar appears but if there are less the scroll bar does not appear leaving an empty gray area where the scroll bar would be.

No, you cannot force scrollbars to show. However you may try to adjust column width to hide "grey area".

I would love to add blank lines so the grid is always full. I just have not been able to find any examples of how to do that. By having blank lines the scroll bar would always appear. If you could point me to some examples that would be great!

OK, please excude my ignorance but I am not getting this. I have attached my code. The maximum number of rows to display is 20. How do I adjust this code to only append whatever number of lines are necessary to fill the grid with 20 lines. For example, if the query return 5 rows, I need 15 blank rows. If the query returns 15 rows I need 5 blank rows. If the query returns more than 20 rows I need no blank rows.
