      ' Set the update mode which dictates when the UltraGrid calls EndEdit
      ' on IEditableObject row objects.
      Me.UltraGrid1.UpdateMode = UpdateMode.OnRowChangeOrLostFocus

      ' Set the scroll style to Immediate so that the UltraGrid scrolls the rows as
      ' the vertical scroll bar thumb is dragged. Normally the UltraGrid defers the
      ' scrolling until the thumb is released and displays scroll tips instead.

Remarks

Most of the settings that apply to the control are set off the UltraGridBase.DisplayLayout property.

The following code snippet illustrates.

            private void button5_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
            	this.ultraGrid1.DisplayLayout.AutoFitStyle = AutoFitStyle.ResizeAllColumns;
            	this.ultraGrid1.DisplayLayout.Bands[0].Columns[1].Hidden = true;
            }
