Hi telerik team,

I have used width(100) etc, in my telerik  columns.bound within the Column(columns => ) . But the text is not getting wrapped, instead i just expands the grid, which i do not want.

the width has no effect if the text has exceeded the column width.

appreciate help. below is the snippet

@(Html.Telerik().Grid(Model.ListM).Name("MyGrid")
     .DataKeys(keys => keys.Add(o => o.Number))
     .Columns(columns =>
     {
         columns.Bound(o => o.Name).Title("Name").emplate(@<text>
               @Html.ActionLink((string)item.Name, "Details", "Management", new { id = item.Number }, null)
               </text>).Width(100);
         columns.Bound(o => o.City).Title("City").Width(100).Filterable(false);
         columns.Bound(o => o.State).Title("State").Width(100).Filterable(false);
         columns.Bound(o => o.Country).Title("Country").Width(100).Filterable(false);
     })
       .ClientEvents(e => e.OnLoad("customizeTelerikGridFilter"))
       .EnableCustomBinding(true)
       .DataBinding(dataBinding => dataBinding.Server().Select("_GetList", "Management"))
       .Pageable(paging => paging.Style(GridPagerStyles.NextPreviousAndNumeric | GridPagerStyles.PageSizeDropDown)
                               .PageSize((int)ViewBag.RecordsinPage, new int[] { 25, 50, 75, 100 })
                               .Total((int)ViewBag.TotalRecords)
                               .Position(GridPagerPosition.Both))
       .Sortable(sorting => sorting
       .OrderBy(sortOrder => sortOrder.Add(o => o.Name).Ascending()))
       .Filterable()


Best regards,
Anand

So my requirement, more preciesely is irresepective of what ever content wether it contain spaces or its a very long word with no spaces, the column width must not change and must wrap on to next line.

eg. "United states" must wrap at spaces (default behaviour) ; even "SomeUnknownNameWithAVeryLongNameVeryUnusualOneButRequired" must also wrap within that column width and must not expand the column distorting the table.

Hi Narayanarao,

You have two options here:
  1. You should not set width for one of the columns.
  2. You should set width of the Grid using the HtmlAttributes method.
    i.e.
    .HtmlAttributes(new { style="width:1000px"})

Hi Petur,

I am unable to get what you mentioned by "You should not set width for one of the columns." please elaborate.

Also the second suggestion does not work.

Best regards,
