Hello,

I am using RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX v2008.1.619.20 as the only grid on a page.  Can I have both fixed-width and dymanic-width columns in the same grid?

So if I resize the grid, some columns stay a fixed-width but other columns can expand/contract as necessary.

Thanks,

Randall Price

Hi Randall,

Yes, please set

TableLayout="Fixed"

for the MasterTableView and widths to some columns, according to your prefenrece.

Hello  Randall,

You can aslo try setting the Rezisable property to false for those columns which you do not want to resize as shown below.
aspx:
<telerik:GridBoundColumn Resizable="false" DataField="Countries" HeaderText="Countries" UniqueName="Countries"
</telerik:GridBoundColumn>   

Thanks
Princy.

Thank You Dimo and Princy,

Your suggestions worked but only when combined.

I already had TableLayout="Fixed" in my MasterTableView, but all columns had specific widths defined, thus the grid was always a constant size.  So I put specific widths only on the columns I do NOT want to resize and left the columns I do want to resize with no width attribute.  Doing this alone did not quite work without the Resizable="false" setting on the columns I do NOT want to resize.

Thank you both.  My RadGrid is now behaving as I want.

Thanks,

Randall Price
