    I am working my way through evaluating Telerik as a replacement for Syncfusion.

    One of the requirements for the application is to show nine columns for example but fill the window with just the first four leaving the rest scrollable. This needs to happen when the screen is initially displayed and anytime it is resized. The four columns should shrink and expand as required to fill the space in the grid and should adapt to whether the grid is grouped or not.

    Granted this was done with some hard won knowledge of how Syncfusion's GroupingGrid works but I need to be able to accomplish the same thing with GridView to make it a viable replacement.

    Is this possible with GridView?

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for your interest. 

    This layout is not built-in in RadGridView and you should use custom row layout. To do this, you should first create a custom view definition and replace the default one in RadGridView. I prepared an example. You can find it attached here. 

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

    Jack,

    Very nice! That works great and does exactly what I want. Now if I could find a workaround for this http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/details/Issue=9597 I'd have it nailed.

    Thanks,
