When double click on the line between 2 columns at the column header, the column will resize to a default size. How do I make it such that it will resize to the best fit (longest content in the column ) like in excel? Thanks.

There is no property that does this, but you can do it handling the ResizingCols event.
private void gridControl1_ResizingColumns(object sender, GridResizingColumnsEventArgs e)
	if(e.Reason == GridResizeCellsReason.DoubleClick)
		this.gridControl1.ColWidths.ResizeToFit(e.Columns, GridResizeToFitOptions.IncludeHeaders);
		e.Cancel = true;
