This method is useful when you maintain row heights yourself using handlers for the RowHeightInfoNeeded and RowHeightInfoPushed events. Call this method whenever you change the stored row heights outside of a RowHeightInfoPushed event handler. This will force the DataGridView control to retrieve the updated height information through the RowHeightInfoNeeded event handler.
