Hi,
I am new in Winforms and I try an example with a radGridView to display some columns. What I want is to use the horizontal scroll bar to allow the user to see all the columns that don't fit in the display area of the grid. What it does now is to shrink the last columns to a minimum size and the user must go and try to resize the columns in order to see the last columns of the grid.


Thank you very much

Hi Nick,

Thank you for writing.

RadGridView has a AutoSizeColumnsMode property, which has two options - Fill, which will take the grid's width and divide it by the number of the columns and the will set each column the same size, hence no scroll bars will be show. The other option is None (the default one) and when this is set, if the total columns width exceeds the grid's width, scroll bar is automatically shown.

Another interesting method for column sizing is the BestFit method of a column or the BestFitColumns method of the grid, which will size all columns on a way to fit their content. 

More information about these features is available on the following link: http://www.telerik.com/help/winforms/gridview-columns-resizing-columns-programatically.html.

Let me know how this works for you.

Regards,
