    songsDataGridView.Columns["Title"].Name = DataGridViewContentAlignment.BottomCenter.ToString();

    songsDataGridView.Columns["Release Date"].Name = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter.ToString();

    songsDataGridView.Columns["Track"].DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
    songsDataGridView.Columns["Track"].Name = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleLeft.ToString();
}
Private Sub ChangeColumnAlignment()
    songsDataGridView.Columns("Title").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.BottomCenter
    songsDataGridView.Columns("Title").Name = DataGridViewContentAlignment.BottomCenter.ToString()

    songsDataGridView.Columns("Artist").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.BottomLeft
    songsDataGridView.Columns("Artist").Name = DataGridViewContentAlignment.BottomLeft.ToString()

    songsDataGridView.Columns("Album").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.BottomRight
    songsDataGridView.Columns("Album").Name = DataGridViewContentAlignment.BottomRight.ToString()

    songsDataGridView.Columns("Release Date").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
    songsDataGridView.Columns("Release Date").Name = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter.ToString()

    songsDataGridView.Columns("Track").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleLeft
    songsDataGridView.Columns("Track").Name = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleLeft.ToString()
End Sub

Remarks

The default DataGridViewCellStyle returned by this property has an initial Alignment property value of MiddleCenter. This value overrides the value specified in the DefaultCellStyle property of the DataGridView control, but may be overridden by other cell style properties. For more information, see Cell Styles in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

Note

When visual styles are enabled, the buttons in a button column are painted using a ButtonRenderer and cell styles specified through properties such as DefaultCellStyle have no effect.
