VB.net DataGridView AutoSizeColumnsMode Issue

Hi
I have a DataGridView  where AutoSizeColumnsMode is set to AllCells
I add columns to the DataGridView using the following code. I need the initial
width to be 240 but because there is no initial data the column shrinks.
Is there a way to avoid this?

        Dim DVG1Col As New DataGridViewComboBoxColumn
                DVG1Col.Name = sColumnHeading
                DVG1Col.Width = 240
                DVG1Col.DisplayStyle = DataGridViewComboBoxDisplayStyle.ComboBox
                DVG1Col.HeaderText = sColumnHeading
                Me.DataGridView1.Columns.Add(DVG1Col)

If you change the AutoSizeMode of a specific column, it overrides the default setting given to the whole grid:

DVG1Col.AutoSizeMode = DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.None
