I have a website that loads based on SQL information fired up to the net from a Windows Forms application. I am able to generate charts with a gradient affect like that in the image using just VB.net code. I was hoping to do the same with GridViews or at least get as close to just code

Personally, I'd get rid of the GridView controls and go with a client-side grid. They are much easier to use and control the look and feel. "native" ASP.Net controls are overly cumbersome and very difficult to manipulate.
