I have a simple form that contains a Label, DataGridView and a Panel and within the Panel, a Label and ComboBox.

What I'm trying to do is autosize the form and not sure how to calculate the dimensions of the DGV. Here is my code.

    Private Sub CalculateControlPositions()
        Try
            lblItemInfo.Top = 0
            lblItemInfo.Left = 0
            lblItemInfo.Width = Me.Width
            lblItemInfo.Height = 28

            pnl.Top = lblItemInfo.Height + dgvSpecs.Height
            pnl.Left = 0

            dgvSpecs.Top = lblItemInfo.Height

            rowHght = dgvSpecs.RowCount * dgvSpecs.RowTemplate.Height

            Me.Size = New Size(dgvSpecs.Width + 26, rowHght + pnl.Height + 26)
            Me.ClientSize = New Size(dgvSpecs.Width, rowHght + pnl.Height)

            EH.ErrorMessage = ""

        Catch ex As Exception
            EH.ErrorMessage = "CalculateControlPositions() - " & ex.Message & "~E"
        End Try

        EH.ProcessMessages(frmMain, frmMain.sbr, EH.ErrorMessage)
    End Sub

The event is a bit problem, you found some event from the grid or just use the code that updates it.

grid.left = 0
Me.height = Grid.height
Me.width = Grid.width

Of cause if you need to fit this perfect you need calculate all borders and bar sizes from API call's and use them to minus some of the grid size, you can estimate this, but it's not good in all operating system settings.
