Hi,
I am having some problems with the datagrid and extra empty columns, see attachments.

I'm creating the datagrid in codebehind, via
datagrid.ItemsSource = gridDataSet.Tables[0].DefaultView; 

And there is an extra empty column that appears, is there any way to make it disappear ?

best regards
krissi.

Hi krissi,

Actually this is not extra column - grid rows are just stretched to the available grid width.

Hi again,
I am sorry, but I am not with you on this one, [quote] grid rows are just stretched to the available grid width. [/quote]

As I see it the columns are just stretched to take up the space they need and the grid add this filler column, well I would
like to get rid of this extra filler if possible.

Is there something I can to to remedy this ?

For further clarification I uploaded a new pick with a red square around the filler column.

Thanks for the quick answer.

Best regards
krissi.

Hello kristjan einarsson,

Currently this is the expected behavior of RadGridView. For the time being the only wayto workaround the problem is to setup the columns in such a way that they fill all of the available space.

Is this behavior a show-stopper for you?

Hi again,
Yes it is a showstopper, since the data is dynamic, I never have a clue how may columns there are going to be.
But I must be able to create the columns at run time and set the last column with the remaining width.

Best regards
krissi.

Hello krissi,

You can check the standard MS DataGrid for more info - our grid is rendered in exactly the same way. This is not an extra column - the grid rows are measured with the grid width. No extra cells or columns!

Sincerely yours,

Hello,

I've got the same requirements as Kristjan. It would be great, if the last column could by default be sized to use the remaining available horizontal space.

Hi,
found a solution for the problem.
just set the AutoGeneratingColumn event
 
private void datagrid_AutoGeneratingColumn(object sender, GridViewAutoGeneratingColumnEventArgs e) 
       e.Column.Width = new GridViewLength(20, GridViewLengthUnitType.Star); 


Works for my needs.

Best regards
Krissi.

I tried to set up the columns to fit the grid width by giving the last column width = grid.width - total width of the rest of the columns.

This worked, but still if the user resizes the columns i get the "extra" column again. 

How can i avoid it? 

Thanks,

Ofer

Hi,

You can set "*" Width for the last column:

RadGridView1.Columns[RadGridView1.Columns.Count - 1].Width = new Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridViewLength(1, Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridViewLengthUnitType.Star);


Kind regards,
