I am trying to use a GridView control in an ASP.NET/C# project with the AutoGenerateColumns="true".  The data loads into the GridView but I am having two issues.  First issue is that I am unable to get the GridView to scroll horizontally.  It seems that it is just stuffing all the data into the GridView and not expanding.   Second issue is that I am unable to re-size the columns to fit the data. I have feeling that one of these issues may be causing the other.

<asp:Panel ID="Panel2" runat="server" CssClass="panel" Width="100%" ScrollBars="Horizontal">
        <div class="grid" style="width: 100%; overflow: auto;">
            <asp:GridView ID="grdProductionResorces" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="True"   OnRowDataBound="grdProductionResorces_OnRowDataBound"
                OnRowCreated="grdProductionResorces_RowCreated"
                BorderStyle="None" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="3" BackColor="White" BorderColor="#999999" GridLines="Vertical" CssClass="dataGridTable th">
                <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#DCDCDC" />
                <Columns>
                </Columns>
                <FooterStyle BackColor="#CCCCCC" ForeColor="Black" />
                <HeaderStyle BackColor="#000084" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <PagerStyle BackColor="#999999" ForeColor="Black" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
                <RowStyle BackColor="#EEEEEE" ForeColor="Black" />
                <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#008A8C" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <SortedAscendingCellStyle BackColor="#F1F1F1" />
                <SortedAscendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#0000A9" />
                <SortedDescendingCellStyle BackColor="#CAC9C9" />
                <SortedDescendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#000065" />
            </asp:GridView>
        </div>
    </asp:Panel>

I'm not sure but I think you just want to disable text wrapping. You shouldn't need the extra div (I'm guessing you added that for testing). Try this:
    <asp:Panel ID="Panel2" runat="server" CssClass="panel" Width="100%" ScrollBars="Horizontal">
            <asp:GridView ID="grdProductionResorces" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="True" OnRowDataBound="grdProductionResorces_OnRowDataBound"
                OnRowCreated="grdProductionResorces_RowCreated"  
                BorderStyle="None" BorderWidth="1px" CellPadding="3" BackColor="White" BorderColor="#999999" GridLines="Vertical" CssClass="dataGridTable th">
                <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="#DCDCDC" />
                <Columns>
                </Columns>
                <FooterStyle BackColor="#CCCCCC" ForeColor="Black" />
                <HeaderStyle BackColor="#000084" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <PagerStyle BackColor="#999999" ForeColor="Black" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
                <RowStyle BackColor="#EEEEEE" ForeColor="Black" />
                <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#008A8C" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
                <SortedAscendingCellStyle BackColor="#F1F1F1" />
                <SortedAscendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#0000A9" />
                <SortedDescendingCellStyle BackColor="#CAC9C9" />
                <SortedDescendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#000065" />
                <RowStyle Wrap="false" />
            </asp:GridView>
    </asp:Panel>

Open in new window

So the <RowStyle> makes sure the content pushes the cell width to the right. Your panel already supports horizontal scrolling so that should be enough.
