How do resize listview colums widths programatically in compact framework?

I have a listview called lvPoints. I know how to set the thing up prior to data being added but once the data has been added how do I resize each column programmatically?

I found an article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.listview.autoresizecolumn%28v=vs.90%29.ASPX that says to use the AutoResizeColumn property but that is not supported in my version of compact framework. The target device is a Win Mobile 6.5 pro.

Thanks

According to the [MSDN page] on column widths:

This property enables you to set the Width of the ColumnHeader. The ColumnHeader can be set to adjust at run time to the column contents or heading. To adjust the width of the longest item in the column, set the Width property to -1. To autosize to the width of the column heading, set the Width property to -2

For your purposes you should be setting the column width to -1. Note that you will have to do this after adding the items to the list.
