We are displaying a DataGridControl in a popup window of fixed height. The DataGridControl populates by being bound to a DataGridCollectionView on top of an EditableItemBindingList patterned after the Xceed "Composers" sample. We are showing gridlines and alternating row colors. All is basically working fine.
But, when the number of rows of data in the underlying source is not enough to vertically fill the host popup window we observe that the DataGridControl adjusts its height to fit the actual number of rows leaving a blank space below it (between its horizontal scroll bar and the bottom of the host popup window).
In our opinion, it would be aesthetically more pleasing if the DataGridControl stretched down to fill the host popup window, painting in grid lines and alternate colors automatically to fill the space. The space would appear as "blank rows" in the DataGrid.
Is there a way to make it do this?
