According to http://www.telerik.com/blogs/ui-for-uwp-is-officially-here-bringing-datagrid-beta, the official release of DataGrid (due Q2 2016) was supposed to bring a responsive control, making it suitable for use on a phone.

However, I'm not getting that experience. I'm not sure how Telerik envision DataGrid being responsive but, when I use it on a phone, I have to scroll from side-to-side in order to see all of the data on a single row.

I don't know whether or not responsiveness made it into the control. The documentation doesn't seem to make any reference to getting the control to adapt to different screen sizes.

I'm keen to use this control on a phone but I'm struggling to find a way of getting it to look good.

Hello Philip,

The control itself does not automatically change its appearance based on screen size but we have implemented several features that can be very helpful on a smaller device such as a phone. For example: External EditingColumnHeader Flyout, Frozen columns(RadDataGrid.FrozenColumnsCount), CellFlyout(DataGridColumn.IsCellFlyoutEnabled) which shows a tooltip over a cell so the whole content can be visible, ColumnChooser(RadDataGrid.CanUserChooseColumns) which enables the user to show/hide columns instead of endless horizontal scrolling and also GroupPanelPosition (RadDataGrid.GroupPanelPosition) which can position the group panel either left or bottom.

I hope this information is helpful.
