Have a list view with multiple columns.  Is there a way to get the columns to AutoSize similar to a RadGridView of "FILL".  I have not found anything yet.  

 

Thanks for the help.

Estimated mark,
Use the bestfit property of the columns.

column.columns (i) .bestfit()

foreach (ListViewDetailColumn c in this.radListView1.Columns)
    {
        c.BestFit();
    }

Hi Mark,

This functionality is not available in RadListView, however, you can easily implement a similar one. For example, you can use the Resize event to set the column width:
private void RadListView1_Resize(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    int columnWidth = radListView1.Width / radListView1.Columns.Count;
    foreach (var item in radListView1.Columns)
    {
        item.Width = columnWidth;
    }
}

I hope this will be useful. Let me know if you have additional questions.

Regards,

Yes, I know about BestFit(), but this doesn't do what I want it to.  I have my columns set to a specified min width size. So, these columns will fit perfectly when the form is set to it min size.  When I resize the form, my control resizes as well, however, unlike a GRID's columns that has an AutoSizeMode.FILL, which will resize the columns so they fill the control (no dead space on the right side of the control).  However, as I discovered and Dimitar pointed out, this functionality doesn't exists for a ListBox control. Yes, BestFit will resize the columns based on the AutoSizeMode of the control (which can be based on the header, cell contents, both or none), it will not FILL the control, therefor, leaving ugly dead space in the control.   I believe Dimitar's solution will work. I am going to try that out.

Hi, Mark. I know this is probably a bit late, but I'd encourage you (and anyone else keen for this functionality) to keep tabs on this feedback item. Hopefully if more interest is shown this property will be added soon.
