I have noticed a peculiar behavior where if you have column widths larger than the total grid size, columns that do not have a fixed width won't render, even if they are supposed to. I have created a dojo that shows the problem:

http://dojo.telerik.com/@yazdog8/OSOKi/2

 The "Contact Name" column isn't rendered on creation of the grid. If you were to hide a fixed width column, say "Contact Title", all of the columns that should be shown are present. However, if you re-activate the fixed width column you just hit, the column with no width is hidden again. I'd expect that even if all of the widths exceed the grid width, you would at least see something for the non fixed width column.

Hello Joe,

This behavior is expected. When the scrolling of the Grid is enabled, the layout of the Grid's table is set to fixed. This means that the width of the columns will not depend on their content, but the browser will size them as suitable. If there are columns with no width set, the browser will allocate them in the space that is left, and since there is no such place in this case, they won't be displayed at all.

I hope this information was helpful.

Dimiter,

 Thanks for the clarification. Wondering if it might be a nice feature to have a min-width option in the columns just for this purpose.

Hello Joe,

Currently the columns have a minScreenWidth configuration option. It determines the minimum pixel width of the screen, on which the column will be visible.
