I have a radgrid with 2 columns at 400px each. I have set the width of the grid to 600px and AllowScroll=true. I also have AllowColumnResize=true, when i resize column 1 to 500px by dragging, it will automatically resize column 2 down to 300px, maintaining the original overall width of a combined 800px for the 2 columns. Is there anyway to maintain the size of column 2 when column 1 is resized such that column 1 is the new resized 500px and column 2 stays at 400px, increasing the overall combined size to 900px? I looked at ReizeGridOnColumnResize=true but that causes my grid width of 600px and allowscroll to be ignored and the width of the grid is displayed as the full 900px causing the rest of my page layout to be stretched.

                               <telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server"
                                ClientSettings-Scrolling-AllowScroll="true"                                     
                                OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid_NeedDataSource"
                                height="200"
                                Width="600">
                              <ClientSettings>
                                <Resizing AllowColumnResize="True" ResizeGridOnColumnResize="false" />
                              </ClientSettings>
                                <MasterTableView AutoGenerateColumns="false" >
                                    <Columns>                                        
                                        <telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderStyle-Width="400" HeaderText="1">
                                        </telerik:GridTemplateColumn>
                                        <telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderStyle-Width="400" HeaderText="2">
                                        </telerik:GridTemplateColumn>                                        
                                    </Columns>
                                </MasterTableView>
                            </telerik:RadGrid>

Hi Jack,

Yes, you can achieve this requirement using the following steps:

1. Remove the Width property of the grid.

2. Enable this property:
<Resizing ... ResizeGridOnColumnResize="true" />

3. Add the following CSS rule:
<style>
    div.RadGrid {
        max-width: 600px;
    }
</style>

I hope this will prove helpful.

Regards,
Eyup
