.NET has the Split Container control, which allows for end user resizing. I use it regularly in my projects, and it does a pretty good job of allowing the user to resize portions of the application to suit the own requirements and screen sizes.

I set my DGV to "Fill" for the Dock property. This immediately auto-sizes it with that Split Container. If you don't want to do that, you can set the Anchor properties of the DGV as appropriate.
