Reducing flicker, blinking in DataGridView

One of my project requirement was to create a Output Window similar to Visual Studio. For that I used a DataGridView. But when I start my application , I found that there is lot of blinking, flicker, pulling...After badly hitting my head with google, I found a very easy way. We just need to create a extension method to DataGridView and it's all done:

public static void DoubleBuffered(this DataGridView dgv, bool setting)
{
    Type dgvType = dgv.GetType();
    PropertyInfo pi = dgvType.GetProperty("DoubleBuffered",
          BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.NonPublic);
    pi.SetValue(dgv, setting, null);
}
