To programatically size the row heights and colwidth, you call grid.Model.RowHeights.ResizeToFit and grid.Model.ColWidths.ResizeToFit. (If you are trying to do this from a point when the grid is not visibl, say in FormLoad, you should also set grid.AllowResizeToFit = false.)

There is a GridResizeToFitOption.NoShrink flag you can pass when you call grid.Model.ColWidths.ResizeToFit to prevent the size from decreasing, but I do not think this is what you asked about when you mentioned mimum size. To impose a Minimum size, you would have to first call grid.Model.ResizeToFit and then have code like: Me.Grid.Model.ColWidths[3] = Math.Max(Me.Grid.Model.ColWidths[3], someMinValue) If it flickers too much, you can add a grid.BeginUpdate before you do teh resizing, and a grid.EndUpdate followed by grid.Refresh after the sizing code.

hi, its working fine except the wrap property ie., if the user has not used the "Enter" key during input into the textbox.... and if the input is one long line then it should wrap itself at the max length of the cell and appear in the next line i tried other ways too but this is not working any suggestions thanks Shri

If you drag the row height larger, you should be able to see the multiple lines if you have style.WrapText = true. If you want to have the cell height autosize as you type into the cell, then try setting the style.AutoSize = true for that column.
