    When I Use BestFit on a grouped grid that has only few columns, the columns get resized to fit the header (since no contents are visible after databind due to the grouping).
    However, when Grouping is enabled, the group header/summary should be shown in full if there is enough space.
    What can I do to ensure that the coulms are resized wide enough to ensure that the group headers are fully visible.

    Hello erwin,

    Thank you for this question.

    This is an interesting case. Currently RadGridView doesn't support BestFit for the group header row. We will consider implementing this functionality in one of our future versions.

    You have two options to solve this issue:

    1. Set the AutoSizeColumnsMode property of MasterGridViewTemplate to Fill. In this case, the columns will occupy the whole RadGridView.

    2. Change the column width manually by using the Width property.

    I hope this helps. If you have further questions, I will be glad to help.

    Sincerely yours,

    Is this addressed in any of the new releases? I'd alos like to BestFit a sub grouped cell but can't find a sensible way to do it.

    Hello Richard Slade,

    Currently best fit option works only for data cells, it can't be used to calculate and set the optimal width for a group header row. However, you can call BestFitColumns method when handling GroupExpanded event. Please find the detailed answer to your question in your previous ticket (ID 285050).
