    Hi JagjitSingh,

    Since you have thousands of records, I suggest you could use paging.

    You could refer to the link below to learn how to paging in gridview.

    Please read Retrieving and Displaying Data first and then read Sorting, Paging, and Filtering Data


    If you must show the whole data in one page,I suggest you use ajax, ajax could work with loading image while gridview without ajax couldn't.

    About autoadjust, you could use bootstrap grid system.


    Below is my code.

     <link href="https://cdn.datatables.net/1.10.19/css/jquery.dataTables.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />
      <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.js"></script>
        <script src="https://cdn.datatables.net/1.10.19/js/jquery.dataTables.min.js"></script>
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <div class="row"><div class="col col-sm-3"></div><div  class="col-10 col-sm-6" ><img id="img" src="../images/WingtipToys/planeglider.png" width="100%" ></div><div class="col-3"></div></div>
         <div class="row" id="table"><div class="col-1"></div> <div class="col-10">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#myModal" >Add New</button><br /><br />
            <table id="tblCategory" class="ui celled table" width="100%" >
                <thead class="bg-primary text-white">
        </div><div class="col-1 col-sm-3"></div></div>
          function loadData()
              $("#table").hide();//hide the table at first
            type: "POST",
            dataType: "json",
            contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
            url: "/Services/WebService.asmx/GetCategories",
            success: function (data) {
                var dt = $('#tblCategory').DataTable({
                    //stop initial ordering
                    order: [],
                    "data": data.d,
                    "columns": [
                        { 'data': 'No' },
                        { 'data': 'Code' },
                        { 'data': 'Description' },
                        { 'data': 'Months'},
                            "mRender": function (data, type, row) {
                                return '<a class="btn btn-warning" onClick="getbyID(row.No)" href="#">Edit</a>';
                $("#table").show();//when the data returns , show the table and hide the image

    Code behind.

            public Category[] GetCategories()
                Category[] categories = new Category[] {
                    new Category{No=1,Code="hello",Description="product",Months=11},
                      new Category{No=25,Code="toy",Description="dtoy",Months=9},
                        new Category{No=31,Code="computer",Description="goodcomputer",Months=2},
                          new Category{No=86,Code="mobile",Description="it's good",Months=5},
                            new Category{No=67,Code="apple",Description="fruit",Months=7},
                Thread.Sleep(3000);//to stop for three seconds to simulate much data
                return categories;

    The result.

    Best regards,

    Better use paging  for thousands of records. You can use an ObjectDataSource, so sorting and Paging will work automatically.

    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" Runat="server"
    AllowPaging="True" >

    source....Asp.Net Gridview
