Hi All
I have a method to configure a datagridview, meaning changing the column widths, format columns etc.
If I call the configuration meathod from the form load doesn't work because the form hasn't been totaly loaded and I dont get the correct size of the datagrid, to be able to adjust the clomns with.
How can I performed this.

Private Sub Custom_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        dgv_Custom.DataSource = dt_Custom
    End Sub

Please post the codes for configuration method.

From my opinion you must have to check that config method thoroghly.


Here is the Configuration_Method.

 Private Sub dgv_Config()
            With Me.dgv_Custom
                .AutoSizeRowsMode = DataGridViewAutoSizeRowsMode.AllCells
                .ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .DefaultCellStyle.Font = New Font("Microsoft Sans Serif", 10, FontStyle.Regular)
                .RowHeadersWidth = 30
                .Columns("Due Date < 4 Weeks").Width = 65
                .Columns("Due Date < 4 Weeks").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("Room").Width = 200
                .Columns("OE#").Width = 75
                .Columns("OE#").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("Colour").Width = 125
                .Columns("Colour").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("FloorPlan Issue#").Width = 75
                .Columns("FloorPlan Issue#").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("Order Status").Width = 55
                .Columns("Order Status").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("Order Form").Width = 75
                .Columns("Order Form").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("Custom Retail").Width = 75
                .Columns("Custom Retail").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("Custom Parts Category").Width = 75
                .Columns("Custom Parts Category").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("Number of Custom Parts").Width = 75
                .Columns("Number of Custom Parts").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("P8 Custom Parts Start").Width = 85
                .Columns("P8 Custom Parts Start").DefaultCellStyle.Format = "MMM-dd-yy"
                .Columns("P8 Custom Parts Start").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("P7 Custom Parts Due").Width = 85
                .Columns("P7 Custom Parts Due").DefaultCellStyle.Format = "MMM-dd-yy"
                .Columns("P7 Custom Parts Due").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("P9 Finished Parts Start").Width = 85
                .Columns("P9 Finished Parts Start").DefaultCellStyle.Format = "MMM-dd-yy"
                .Columns("P9 Finished Parts Start").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("P10 Finished Parts Due").Width = 85
                .Columns("P10 Finished Parts Due").DefaultCellStyle.Format = "MMM-dd-yy"
                .Columns("P10 Finished Parts Due").DefaultCellStyle.Alignment = DataGridViewContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
                .Columns("Link").Visible = False
                .Columns("P8_stat").Visible = False
                .Columns("P7_Stat").Visible = False
                .Columns("P9_stat").Visible = False
                .Columns("P10_Stat").Visible = False
                .Columns("Rescheduled").Visible = False
                .Columns("Required").Visible = False
            End With
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(Me.Name & ".dgv_Config" & ex.Message)
        End Try

    End Sub

As per your 2nd post you declared the configuration method for datagridview is dgv_Config(), but you are calling Config_Datagrid().
These two are not same.
