Set Gridview height to Percentage of Screen Height

I'm using
Is it possible to Set the Gridview height to Percentage of Screen Height rather than an absolute number of pixels?
Width seems to allow this.

I am aware that by setting the dock property, it allows the grid to be same size of the parent (form/user control)
myGridView.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;// This can also be set to left, or right, etc..

Does this help you?

I don't think so - because it can grow/shrink vertically based on the number of rows should the contents be modified dynamically.

In Asp.NET I was able to do the below, does this work for you? It sets as percentage of the of the parent form.
  <asp:GridView  ID="GridView1" runat="server" Width="50%" Height ="50%">

I tried that.  When the grid had lots of rows it just passed the bottom of the screen.  I'd set it to be 20% of the screen height with verticals scrollbars.

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" DataKeyNames ="xxx"  
        AllowSorting="True" Font-Names="Arial" Font-Size="Small"  
        RowStyle-Wrap="False" BackColor="White" BorderColor="Silver"    
        AutoGenerateColumns="True" onsorting="GridView1_Sorting" Height="20%" Width ="80%">
            <RowStyle Wrap="False" />

What if you put the gridview inside another section and try to control the height of that section.
