GridVisibleColumnDescriptorCollection.get_TotalWidth - Object Reference not set

Hi, I have a grouping grid which occasionally raises an object reference not set exception and also occasioanly fails to draw the grid. I call a method that sets up the datasource and manually defines the columns to show based on parameters passed in. This a snapshot of the code: grid.SuspendLayout(); grid.DataSource = dataSource; grid.TableDescriptor.Columns.Clear(); grid.TableDescriptor.VisibleColumns.Clear(); grid.TableDescriptor.GroupedColumns.Clear(); grid.TableDescriptor.SortedColumns.Clear(); CreateDisplayColumns(); CreateGroupingColumns(); HideGroupingColumns(); AddSortByColumn(); grid.ResumeLayout(); CreateDisplayColumns does the following: It creates new GridColumnDescriptors and adds them to grid.TableDescriptor.Columns and grid.TableDescriptor.VisibleColumns for the columns the user wants to see. CreateGroupingColumns: Adds any required grouping cols to grid.TableDescriptor.GroupedColumns HideGroupingColumns: Simply sets colwidth to 0 for any grouping cols - this looks nicer AddSortByColumn: Adds a single sort by col to grid.TableDescriptor.SortedColumns if required. Is this the best approach for configuring the grid? Is there a better way in terms of performance? Would could be causing null reference exception. Thanks a lot Jason PS I''ve attached exception msg erortext_8085.zip

FYI using grid.TableModel.BeginUpdate(BeginUpdateOptions.Invalidate) and grid.TableModel.EndUpdate(true) Seem to make a lot of difference. The exceptions haven;t appeared since and the grid display is a lot quicker.
