How to do that would automatically change the size of the column height, depending on the amount of text in it?

Hi guys,

That is correct, the AutoSizeRows is what you need in order to size your rows according to their content. 

@Mahmoud - thank you for your community effort. I have updated your Telerik Points as a token of appreciation.

Hello Stas,

Thank you for writing.

You would also need to handle the CellFormatting event of the grid and set the TextWrap property of the CellElement argument to true. Please see my code snippet below:
public partial class Form1 : Form
{
    public Form1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
  
        GridViewTextBoxColumn textBoxColumn = new GridViewTextBoxColumn("TextBoxColumn");
        radGridView1.MasterTemplate.Columns.Add(textBoxColumn);
  
        this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse auctor non nibh sit amet tempus. Suspendisse potenti.");
        this.radGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill;
        this.radGridView1.AutoSizeRows = true;
  
        this.radGridView1.CellFormatting += radGridView1_CellFormatting;
    }
  
    private void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.CellElement is GridDataCellElement && e.CellElement.ColumnInfo.Name == "TextBoxColumn")
        {
            e.CellElement.TextWrap = true;
        }
    }
}

I am also sending you gif file of the result on my end.

I hope this information is useful. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
