I need to alter the Filtercontrol width according to the RadGrid Column width. I know how to assign the width statically by using filter column width.

I want to make this in one place for all grids. Anyone know how to get the column width after binding and need to assign the same for Filtercontrol.

Anyone has any idea?

Hello Priya,

Please note RadFilter and RadGrid filtering are different things.

As explained by Princy in the forum post below, it is not possible to find out a column width on the server, unless you have explicitly set it.

As for your question regarding setting FilterControlWidth (or column width) in one common place, this can be done in a similar fashion as adding the   strings - you can use a custom control inheriting from RadGrid and attach a ColumnCreated event handler in the control's contructor.
