after the data source for the grid is being updated the columns adjusts them widths perfectly by using "BestFitColumns(BestFitColumnMode.DisplayedCells)" ,but what i wan to acheive next is to resize the hole grid based on the new size of the columns , i have set the autosize property to true and also tried AutoSizeColumnsMode = Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill but that stops the columns to adjust based on the text inside , can't i adjust both together columns and hole grid width ??

If you set AutoSizeColumnsMode to GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill, the grid will be restricted to the size of its parent control it is put into (e.g. a Panel). Therefore, you can only adjust the columns width inside the restricted grid size by looping through all columns and calling column.BestFit().

To adjust the size of the grid itself, you need to set AutoSizeColumnsMode to GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.None whereby a horizontal scrollbar will appear if the grid size will get larger than its parent control.

Could you try BestFitColumnMode.AllCells?

Hello mansouri,

As M S mentioned, you can try using the BestFitColumns() method and pass BestFitColumnMode.AllCells enumeration as parameter. You could check the Resizing columns programmatically help article for more information regarding this method.
