There is a great component for extending the basic .NET 2.0 DataGridView control.
It does not inherits the DataGridView control but just adds an additional functionalities to the basic one. Some of these features are export to Excel, Html ... soon Pdf and printing, searching for text in the grid, theme managment (setting colors, fonts, ... styles) and persistence of all made changes (column reordering, column widths, styles ... etc"). I hope you will find it very helpfull. It's completly free and you can download it from here.
