    If you are talking about fixing column width try ItemStyle-Width attribute.

    I am not talking about Fixing Column Width, but about freezing Columns, so
    that if i scrool with scroll bar, certain number of columns stay fixed on Ui
    and only the other ones move.

    That kind of UI will be so confusing to user. Think for a moment what will
    happen if one column in fixed and other columns move doen. Now the fixed
    column data is completely out of sync with rest of the columns. Nobody will
    be able to make any sense out the information in the grid. Also if you have
    header in grid, what kind of behavior r u looking for that... fixed too :)
    I can't even imagine what kind of UI it will look like.

    What utter rubbish! That functionality has been part of every spreadsheet
    package for the last 10 years at least...

    Try it out

    I know its hard to freeze columns in grid view when its placed inside a panel to scroll. The only workaround you can try using 2 grid view controls and place them in 2 different panel control. The first gridview should have only freezable columns. for synch scrolling use scrolling events to scroll togeather.

    Another idea is to use Infragistics that has inbuild capability of scrolling and freezing.
