What is the correct way to programmatically specify a required width for a TableCell in a Table?
I'm trying:
cell.PreferredWidth = new TableWidthUnit(TableWidthUnitType.Fixed, (float)120);
and:
cell.PreferredWidth = new TableWidthUnit(TableWidthUnitType.Percent, (float)20);
and:
cell.PreferredWidth = new TableWidthUnit(TableWidthUnitType.Percent, (float)0.2);
but neither has any effect on the resulting table where the columns are created too wide and don't fit into my document.

Also, is there any way to restrict the maximum width of a table row so that it always fits into the document and it's columns are spread evenly?

Help!

Hello Aggie,

The property you're currently using is the correct one, however, there are some details about it. First of all, the width conflict resolution policy is to use the width of the first cell in a column with an explicit one set. If you have other cells above the one you're modifying that have PreferredWidth set, those will be used.
Secondly, this gets even more complicated due to the fact that a cell can span more than one column.  To make these situations easier to manage, you have Table.Grid.Columns at your disposable where you can set the preferred widths on a per-column level.

I've seen the demo / project file you gave me but that is for the same width for each column. I need an example that involves ColumnSpan and different width for each column.
