If column widths don't exceed the width of the Grid the rest of the space available is split among the columns. Is there a way to avoid this behavior? I have two action columns on my grid and I want them to be the same size no matter what. The rest of the columns can take the rest of the width of the grid.

The grid I'm using is not scrollable. I know that I could make the grid scrollable and not set the width of the last column (the last column would receive the extra width), but this is not acceptable because setting the grid to scrollable does not work with screen readers.

Hi Dominik,

The described undesired behavior can occur only if all columns have widths and their sum is smaller than the Grid width. I recommend setting widths to the columns that should have them, and leaving the rest of the columns with no widths. If needed, you can also apply a fixed table layout.

For more information, please check:

I hope this helps.
