    We repurchased our license for the toolkit, in part to get a fix for the issue that we saw was listed as fixed in the release notes...


    Fixed: RadGrid's horizontal scroll is not moved in IE when having frozen columns and you click on the scroll bar

    Before this update, when we clicked on the area to the left or right of the scrollbar, there was no scrolling action.
    After the update, we have found that this is fixed.

    But, we have found, that if we resize our browser window which causes a resize of our grid (width is set to 100%), horizontal scrolling is broken again.

    It will not work until we re-rerender the page, and the grid is re-rendered with the new size, coming from the server. Any client side re-sizing causes the horizontal scrolling to break again for us.

    This is occurring in IE 8 and 9 for us.

    A very simple fix to this problem when you have scrolling columns with few frozen columns is below:
    Just make sure that you set the GridView width equal to the width of number of visible columns at any point of time. Can be understood with the example as:
    Let us suppose we have 20 columns in the grid view. Out of these first two are frozen & after frozen columns we have to display 6 columns and rest depending on scroll. So to notice here is that at any point of time we have 8 columns being displayed (2 frozen + 6 scrolling). So set the header style width of all these columns to let us say 100. So you must set the width of your GridView to 800 and like wise.

    This problem is fixed and should not exists  if you are using the latest Telerik.UI version for ASP.NET AJAX.
