    I have a grid that has filtering enabled on each column. When I call AutoFitColumn(), the columns size correctly to accommodate the data, but some are too narrow to show the heading. I don't know if this is related to the fact that the filtering icon also displays in the column heading, or if the heading text is simply ignored altogether when doing the autofit.

    The problem is obvious: Having a column named "Sca..." isn't as useful as having one named "Scanned Date" and this actually destroys the case for using AutoFitColumn in the first place.

    Is there a decent workaround for this?

    Hello Cobus,

    Indeed, the filter icon causes column auto fitting to not work as expected and the filter icon to overlap the header cell text. The reason for the issue is a negative margin that is used for the filtering button, but the CSS implementation can be tweaked to avoid the problem. Here is an example:

    We have fixed this in our source and changes will take effect in the next Kendo UI builds. I have updated your Telerik points for bringing the issue to our attention.

    I am using the kendo version 2017.3.1026 and got the same non-desire behaviour as Cobus, when I'm add the filter icon and apply the autofit function all the headings are truncated.

    is there any solution on this?

    Hi Martin,

    Based on the provided description, I am not sure how do you add a filter icon. Could you please elaborate on that?

    Filtering is just an option in the grid that you turn on. Then you get a filtering icon.
