I looked through the forum and didn't find anything like what I'm after.

Basically, I want to have two grids with the same columns but representing different data. If the user resizes the columns in one, then I want the other one to have its columns the same width, calculated on the client side.

The documentation doesn't mention anything about manipulating the column widths using a client-side script, so I'm not even sure if this kind of width manipulation is possible. If it's not possible, that's fine. I have other options to consider, but this one is the best for me (assuming there's an easy way to do it).

The basic idea would be to catch the OnColumnResized event of one grid and use that to resize the appropriate column in the second grid. Is it possible to do this? If so, how?

Thanks in advance,
Dean

Hello Dean,

Indeed you can handle the OnColumnResized client event for your purpose. In this topic you can find how to get the resized column width and cellIndex. Then you can use the grid client-side API to set the width of the respective column in the second grid. Find some useful client-side properties:
