Hello there,

The observable behavior about the column width is that if the columns have explicit fixed width, and the sum of the fixed width less than the grid width, kendo grid will ignore the width and expand columns to fill the gird. 

But now, I need to make all the columns have  fixed width, user can add or remove columns. So sometimes it will just have one column, or sum of the column width less than grid width, we would not like the column expand to the grid, we hope it just take the fixed width, the remain area become blank.

Is there an solution to solve this issue?

Hi Freddy,

This scenario is not supported out-of-the-box by Kendo UI Grid. As a workaround I would suggest adding an additional empty column without explicit width. Take a look at this dojo which demonstrates the suggested approach in action.

Hello, 

is the planed in any further release that e.g. the frist column is freezed and without a with the columns uses the full rid space?

We love the Freeze column feature but this is almost a must for freezed column for used in in real world scenarios. The problem with fixed columns is when you not used it on mobile devices it just looks ugly.

Hello Simon,

I understand the problem. Unfortunately, we cannot fully resolve this limitation as we use a regular HTML table inside the Grid.

To remove the empty space, you could check this article:
