FillWeight Layout DataGridView Columns using VB.Net

FillWeight Layout DataGridView Columns using VB.Net.

In this tutorial, you will learn the purpose of FillWeight in your DataGridView Edit Columns properties.

First, create your Visual Basic project and add a DataGridView on your Form1 designer.

Sample DataGridView in a Form1 designer.

Next, go to the DataGridView’s property tab and set the AutoSizeColumnsMode from None to Fill.

AutoSizeColumnsMode from None to Fill.

Then, we are going to add columns to the blank DataGridView. To add new columns, go again to the properties tab and click the Column collection.

Columns Collection Property.

Then, we will add ID, Name and Address Columns to our DataGridView. After adding the three columns, you will notice that the columns width are distributed evenly.

Now, if you want to make a column reduce its width, all you have to do is to adjust its FillWeight property located at the columns collection property then on the Unbound Column Properties.

Unbound Column Property – FillWeight property location.

So, we are going to adjust the fillweight of the ID column so that it wouldn’t look inappropriate or occupy space because like for example your ID consists of 4 numbers. I adjust the fillweight of the ID column from 100 to 50 and here’s the output.

Expected output when the ID’s fillweight has been modified.

This is much better compared to the recent width of the ID column. Let’s try to add values on our DataGridView by applying this line of code on our Form Load event.

  1. Public Class Form1
  2.  
  3. Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
  4. DataGridView1.Rows.Add("1234", "Ian Lavapiez", "Iloilo City")
  5. DataGridView1.Rows.Add("1235", "Juan de la Cruz", "Bacolod")
  6. DataGridView1.Rows.Add("1236", "Pedro Penduko", "Antique")
  7. DataGridView1.Rows.Add("1237", "Hero Lacataria", "Capiz")
  8. End Sub
  9.  
  10. End Class

Here’s the expected output when we applied the line of code to our project.
