I'm working for a client who has the following grid requirements for a project:

When he clicks a column to sort on that column: "[E]ven if the column has no data, the other column widths change because the sorting function reorders to data, and puts some rows with larger amounts of data in the viewable grid area and this increases the widths of the columns. ... [T]he widths of the columns is changing, and thus the location of the column changes. I think it would be better if the widths did not change when sorting occurs, and thus the columns did not move when the user clicks sort on a column."

Also: "Some of the rows [in the grid] are getting so tall after sorting [because some cells have a ton of text] that even 5 rows is taller  than what fits on my screen. I think the default should be a row of X height with a[n] ellipsis if the cell cannot display all the info within it."

Of course, I might be able to hack the grid source to do these things - but that's if these are really possible. Would anyone have any thoughts as to how to accomplish these tasks?

Thanks,

- Chris
