|The row heights do not automatically adjust.|
The DataGridView control can resize its rows based on the preferred height of each row. The preferred row height is the minimum height required to display the largest cell value in that row. Different size modes let you indicate which cells are used to calculate the new heights (either header cells or nonheader cells) and whether to resize all rows or only the rows that are currently displayed. Resizing a subset of rows is useful to avoid a performance penalty when working with many rows of data.
Content-based automatic resizing prevents users from adjusting row heights with the mouse.
For more information about sizing modes, see Sizing Options in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.
The following code example sets rows to automatically resize their height whenever cell contents change. The new row height is determined from the contents of all rows and columns. This code example is part of a larger example provided in How to: Automatically Resize Cells When Content Changes in the Windows Forms DataGridView Control.
