i have few lines to tell
1. when you gave me the code i used it in a separate project it successfully run. everything was just fine as i wanted . but when used with arrays[array with large deta( with just 50 columns and 100 rows)] it collapsed. why. there were no scroll bars visible on the form .if scroll bars were visible i could drag them to the extreme to view all deta. i have used your full code as you mentioned the dgv exceeded the borders of the form
i have not changed any property except the anchor property was set to top,left,bottom,right

What I have tried:

i told everything in the detail section of the question .

In the design view of your main form, select the DataGridView, then in the Properties page set Anchor to Top, Left and Dock to Fill.

sir you say using dock property is problematic

I cannot guess what that means. Please think about what you need to say, and provide full details.

That was my advice, I prefer not to use Dock as I had some problems with it in the past.

I ran a test earlier and it seems to do what is necessary. But I have never tried a DGV with more than about 10 columns.

The problems I encountered were with a datagridview placed in a usercontrol. I also think Anchor is easier to use when you want other controls like e.g. Buttons aligned next or under the datagridview. But all this might be a personal preference of course :)

Well despite what the documentation may say, everyone's experience seems to be different. But that is all part of the fun. :)
As we don't have access to your code and computer we can not help you sufficiently.
