Hello,

I have a RadGridView for which the columns are generated dynamically at run-time.

I need to have the columns be as wide as they need to be for the cell's content but wrap on the column headers so the header text does not define the column width.

I have seen a similar post on these forums but the columns were defined in the Xaml, and the headers contained TextBlock.

In my case, the columns are created during the AutoGeneratingColumn event. As for the headers they are created this way:

private void dg_AutoGeneratingColumn(object sender, GridViewAutoGeneratingColumnEventArgs e)   
{
    e.Column.Header = GetHeaderName(e.Column.UniqueName); 
}

Where GetHeaderName returns a string.

Hello,

 You can add TextBlock or any other UI component programmatically as well to the column Header property.

It worked, I created a TextBlock with TextWrapping and added :

 

 

 

e.Column.Width = GridViewLength.SizeToCells;

So the cells were the correct size.

I'm not happy with the wrapping algorythm, but that's a .Net problem rather than a Telerik one.
