Help with Auto sizing DataGridview's height using VB.NET

Hi,

Is it possible to resize the height of a DataGridView depending on the number of rows to see all the rows in the Grid?

Thanks,

Victor

Hi Victor;

You can but you need to understand something. By default the rows in a grid are set to a size. This size can be changed by the programmer and therefore a grid with multiple rows can also have multiple row height. There can be no controls under the grid otherwise the grid will hide them. There may be more rows then can be displayed on the form.  Now that you understanding this you can do something like this:

' Get the number of rows in the grid and multiply it by the first row height. This assumes all rows are of the same height. You may want to add 1 more row to account for the header row.
DataGridView1.Height = DataGridView1.Rows.Count() * DataGridView1.Rows(0).Height

Open in new window

Hi,

I understand your point, the grids are in a Tablelayoutpanel panel which rows are set to autosize and the control is set to autoscroll.

It worked.

Thank You.
