     This is a simple example of how to dynamically set the column width in a DataGrid control. I spent hours trying to find something that seemed to me should have been a simple help example. I hope I can save somebody some time.

Dim myGridTableStyle As DataGridTableStyle = New DataGridTableStyle()
'Map the style to the dataset table. In this case I only use one table 
' in my query.
myGridTableStyle.MappingName = "Insured"
grdQuotes.TableStyles.Add(myGridTableStyle)
myGridTableStyle.GridColumnStyles(0).Width = 0
myGridTableStyle.GridColumnStyles(1).Width = 250
myGridTableStyle.GridColumnStyles(2).Width = 250
