    UpdateStars(dataGridView.Rows[4], "******************");
}

int ratingColumn = 3;

private void UpdateStars(DataGridViewRow row, string stars)
{

    row.Cells[ratingColumn].Value = stars;

    // Resize the column width to account for the new value.
    row.DataGridView.AutoResizeColumn(ratingColumn, 
        DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.DisplayedCells);
}
