I have an editable RadGridView with set column widths.  When the user clicks a cell to edit its contents, the editing TextBox appears to be much more narrow than the width of its column.  How can I change this so that the TextBox stretches to the column width?

I tried using a template for the cell but this prevented the cell/row validation from working:
<DataTemplate x:Name="editCellTemplate">
    <Grid>
        <TextBox MaxLength="100" Margin="5,3"
                 Width="{Binding ActualWidth,
                            RelativeSource={RelativeSource
                               Mode=FindAncestor,
                               AncestorType={x:Type telerik:GridViewCell}}}"
                 Text="{Binding Label, Mode=TwoWay}" />
    </Grid>
</DataTemplate>
 
<telerik:RadGridView Margin="10" MinHeight="300" RowHeight="30"
              HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top"
              AutoGenerateColumns="False" IsFilteringAllowed="False"
              CanUserInsertRows="True" CanUserDeleteRows="False"
              CanUserFreezeColumns="False" CanUserReorderColumns="False"
              ShowGroupPanel="False" ShowInsertRow="True"
              ItemsSource="{Binding SourceView, Mode=OneWay}">
    <telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
        <telerik:GridViewDataColumn x:Name="Label" Header="Label" Width="300"
                           DataMemberBinding="{Binding Label, Mode=TwoWay}"
                           CellEditTemplate="editCellTemplate" />
        <telerik:GridViewCheckBoxColumn x:Name="Inactive" Header="Inactive"
                             DataMemberBinding="{Binding IsDeleted, Mode=TwoWay}"
                             Width="Auto" />
    </telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
</telerik:RadGridView>

Then I tried setting the CellStyle property, but this had no effect:
<telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellStyle>
    <Style>
        <Setter Property="TextBox.MaxLength" Value="100" />
        <Setter Property="TextBox.Margin" Value="5" />
        <Setter Property="TextBox.Width"
              Value="{Binding ActualWidth, RelativeSource={RelativeSource
                 Mode=FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type telerik:GridViewCell}}}" />
    </Style>
</telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellStyle>

Hi Roger,

 
Since there is no built-in way to achieve this result, you may handle RadGridView's PreparedCellForEdit event to access the default editing element, as shown below:

private void clubsGrid_PreparedCellForEdit(object sender, GridViewPreparingCellForEditEventArgs e)
{
 if ((string) e.Column.Header == "Name")
 {
   var tb = e.EditingElement as TextBox;
   tb.Width=200;
 }
}


Please let me know if you need any further assistance.


Kind regards,

Hello Yungsung,

A possible solution for such requirement is to benefit from the EventToCommandBehavior. Please review the referred help topic for more information.

Hope this fits your requirements.
