gridview font-size, change dynamically

The intent here is to keep overall width of two side-by-side gridviews fixed at 412px. With 2-digit numbers in the month columns all is fine; however, when there are 3 digits to be reported the gridviews overlap each other (please see the attached image).

Question: Is it possible to decrease font size when the numbers are greater then 99 (for the cell or for the entire row)?

Is it possible to keep gridvies width at 412px fixed so that it will not shrink down when smaller font-size and 1-digit data combination exists?


Thank you.

Hi,

Fix the width of the grids in %.

For your above situation, just try providing fixed width for the columns and Set controls to AllowWrap=True

Hi,

You can do something like this but it may not be so efficient if the datagridview has many cells.

Dim smallfont As New Font(dgv.Font.Name, 10)
        For Each row As DataGridViewRow In dgv.Rows
            For Each c As DataGridViewCell In row.Cells
                If IsNumeric(c.Value) Then
                    If c.Value > 99 Then
                        c.Style.Font = smallfont
                        Exit For
                    End If
                End If
            Next
        Next
