Stop Grid from shrinking

How do you stop a grid control from shrinking to fit the data. I have a grid with say only three rows of data and I want it to still fill the whole space it was given in the designer, what property do I have to set so it will.

Currently, there is no property that will give you this behavior. But you can handle an event, Model.QueryColWidth and provide the colwidths dynamically there.
this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.QueryColWidth += new GridRowColSizeEventHandler(grid_QueryColWidth);

private void grid_QueryColWidth(object sender, GridRowColSizeEventArgs e)
	if(e.Index == this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.ColCount)
		e.Size = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.ClientSize.Width - this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.ColWidths.GetTotal(0, this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.ColCount-1);
		e.Handled = true;

That doesn''t help with the height of the control. My main problem is I have a bunch of grids on a form all lined up nice and neat (with enough room to hold 15+ rows), however when there is a grid that only has 3 rows it makes the form look out of sync since the control gets shrunk.

I am sorry, I misread and thought you wanted to expand columns to fill the clientarea. You can have the grid display empty rows by setting this.gridControl1.Model.Options.DisplayEmptyRows = true; Or, you can use the code above (with the right column switch for the last row and ColWidths switched to RowHeights to have a single big row at the bottom.
