' Give cheescake excellent rating.
Private Sub Button8_Click(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button8.Click

    UpdateStars(dataGridView.Rows(4), "******************")
End Sub

Private ratingColumn As Integer = 3

Private Sub UpdateStars(ByVal row As DataGridViewRow, _
    ByVal stars As String)

    row.Cells(ratingColumn).Value = stars

    ' Resize the column width to account for the new value.
    row.DataGridView.AutoResizeColumn(ratingColumn, _
        DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnMode.DisplayedCells)
