Hi Tuan Pham,

There is a way to access the "BestFit" method, even though the API is not quite "pleasant". Here is a code snipped that does it:
GridHeaderRowElement headerElement = (GridHeaderRowElement) ((GridTableElement) this.radGridView1.GridElement).TableBodyElement.Children[0]; 
headerElement.BestFitColumn(radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.Columns.FindByDataField("CompanyName") ); 

I also prepared you a sample application that deomnstrates this functionality. Please find it attached.
We are currently enhancing the API, including the one related to this functionality. The more "clear" version will be introduced no later than SP1, that is expected in about three weeks.

Kind regards,
Mike

Hello Craig Finnigan,

Thank you for the question.

Yes, currently you can use the GridViewTemplate BestFitColumns method:

this.radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.BestFitColumns(); 

Do not hesitate to contact me again if you have other questions.

Am I missing something here?  I am trying to have all my columns adjust to the best fit and nothing seems to happen.

radGridView1.DataSource = dictionary;
 
radGridView1.MasterTemplate.BestFitColumns();

I am databinding to a list of custom objects.

public class dict
    {
        public string DictionaryCode { get; set; }
        public int AttributeMarkCount { get; set; }
        public string Heading { get; set; }
        public string Structure { get; set; }
        public string Reserve1 { get; set; }
        public string Reserve2 { get; set; }
        public string OutputConversionCode { get; set; }
        public string ProcessingCode { get; set; }
        public string Justification { get; set; }
        public string Width { get; set; }
        public string Reserve3 { get; set; }
        public string Reserve4 { get; set; }
        public string Reserve5 { get; set; }
        public string InputConversionCode { get; set; }
        public string Macro { get; set; }
        public string Reserver6 { get; set; }
    }

  List<dict> dictionary = new List<dict>();
.... Add a bunch of items....

Well it looks like it is working but only when I re size the grid does it draw correctly.

I tried radgridview.Refresh(); but it still only works after a re size.
