Use the Navigate event to reset individual column properties, such as width, as appropriate to the table.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member.

// Instantiate the 'Navigate' NavigateEventHandler.
private void CallNavigate()
   myDataGrid.Navigate += new NavigateEventHandler(Grid_Navigate);

// Raise the event when navigating to another table.
private void Grid_Navigate(object sender, NavigateEventArgs e)
   // String variable used to show message.
   string myString = "Navigate event raised, moved to another table";
   // Show the message when navigating to another table.
   MessageBox.Show(myString, "Table navigation information");
