    I apply 'WordEllipsis' TextTrimming when the contents of a GridViewDataColumn can potentially exceed the column width. Such a column usually has a width of 250 or 350, which is set in the XAML. But when I run my application, I notice that the ellipsis is not shown when I make the column smaller then the width in the XAML. (by dragging the column border).

    Is there a way to make sure that the ellipsis is also visible when a user of my application makes the column smaller than the width that is specified in the XAML? (provided that the cell content exceeds the column width of course).

    Hello Sodi,

    Once you set the TextTrimming property of GridViewDataColumn to WordEllipsis, this mode is applied when the contents overflow the content area and works properly when you resize a column. Can you please share some more information about your settings,some code snippets if possible and the grid version you use?
    I have prepared an example that you can use for a test. Feel free to modify it and sent it back to me if needed.

    All the best,
