Hello,

We're trying to find a way to setup a data grid that has locked columns but also has the column widths decided by the content of the cells.  When switching the grid from the default Scrollable true, to false, we get the auto table layout but lose the locked columns.  Is there a way to have both?  We're trying to avoid setting specific widths for each column in the grid.

Thanks

Hi Vance,

In order for a Kendo Grid to have locked columns, there are certain settings that need to be set.

- Enable scrolling.
- Lock at least one column initially.
- Define the height of the Grid.
- Set explicit pixel widths to all columns to allow the Grid to adjust the layout of the frozen and non-frozen table parts.
- Make sure that the total width of all locked columns is equal to or less than the width of the Grid minus three times the width of the scrollbar.

Please take a look at this documentation which details the requirements for locked columns.   

I hope this clears things.

Regards,
Patrick
