Examples

The following code example illustrates the use of this property. This example is part of a larger example available in How to: Set the Sizing Modes of the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

dataGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode =
    DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill;

DataGridViewTextBoxColumn subTitleColumn =
    new DataGridViewTextBoxColumn();
subTitleColumn.HeaderText = "Subtitle";
subTitleColumn.MinimumWidth = 50;
subTitleColumn.FillWeight = 100;

DataGridViewTextBoxColumn summaryColumn =
    new DataGridViewTextBoxColumn();
summaryColumn.HeaderText = "Summary";
summaryColumn.MinimumWidth = 50;
summaryColumn.FillWeight = 200;

DataGridViewTextBoxColumn contentColumn =
    new DataGridViewTextBoxColumn();
contentColumn.HeaderText = "Content";
contentColumn.MinimumWidth = 50;
contentColumn.FillWeight = 300;
dataGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = _
    DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill

Dim subTitleColumn As new DataGridViewTextBoxColumn()
subTitleColumn.HeaderText = "Subtitle"
subTitleColumn.MinimumWidth = 50
subTitleColumn.FillWeight = 100

Dim summaryColumn As new DataGridViewTextBoxColumn()
summaryColumn.HeaderText = "Summary"
summaryColumn.MinimumWidth = 50
summaryColumn.FillWeight = 200

Dim contentColumn As new DataGridViewTextBoxColumn()
contentColumn.HeaderText = "Content"
contentColumn.MinimumWidth = 50
contentColumn.FillWeight = 300

Remarks

When the InheritedAutoSizeMode property value is Fill, the column is resized along with other columns in that mode so that all visible columns in the control exactly fill the horizontal width of the available display area. All fill-mode columns in the control divide the available space in proportions determined by their FillWeight property values. For more information about column fill mode, see Column Fill Mode in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.

The maximum sum of FillWeight values for all columns in a DataGridView control is 65535.
