    i want to use RadGrid in asp.net with dynamical columns with different widths. There is no autosizing like autofit. I tried it with javascript. It works but it isnt a good solution. I tried here with some functions, but nothing happens on sizing. Only text will be changed. Visible unvisible is also not working. I think telerik is in grid a very bad solution.


    in page:


     <telerik:RadGrid ID="rgrdSuche" runat="server" Culture="de-DE" OnColumnCreated="rgrdSuche_ColumnCreated" OnSortCommand="rgrdSuche_SortCommand">
                    <MasterTableView AutoGenerateColumns="true" AllowFilteringByColumn="false">



    i tried with the event itemdatabound, but nothing happened:


     protected void rgrdSuche_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
                    if (e.Item is GridHeaderItem)
                        GridHeaderItem headerItem = e.Item as GridHeaderItem;

                        for (int i = 0; i < headerItem.Cells.Count; i++)
                            switch (headerItem.Cells[i].Text.Replace(" ", ""))
                                case "Comment":
                                    headerItem.Cells[i].Text = "Comment-Text";
                                    headerItem.Cells[i].Width = Unit.Pixel(400);


    and event via ColumnCreated will not work also:


      protected void rgrdSuche_ColumnCreated(object sender, GridColumnCreatedEventArgs e)
                switch (e.Column.UniqueName)
                    case "Comment":
                        e.Column.Visible = false;
                        e.Column.HeaderText = "Comment-Text";
                        e.Column.HeaderStyle.Width = Unit.Pixel(400);
                        e.Column.FilterControlWidth = Unit.Pixel(400);

    Hi Ghostho,

    RadGrid columns have many Resizing Features. I recommend using the Column/Row Resizing demo and adjusting the configurations to find the desired style. In this case, I believe setting the Allow Column Reszing, Enable Real-Time Resizing, No Wrap for Cell Content and Allow Resize to Fit properties will meet the desired style.

    For additional information, see the Column Resizing documentation.

    I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for using the UI for ASP.NET AJAX Forums.
