Query #1: “when a column reorder takes place the column width does not "follow" the column”
We have confirmed that the issue with "Width not changed while reordering column" is a defect and we have logged a defect report. The fix for this issue is estimated to be available on Volume 2, 2014 Service Pack release.
Query #2: “is there methods to retrieve the layout and also restore the layout?”
We can maintain the grid state using “persist” in Grid. When the Persist is set as true, the grid state will be stored in the localStorage and the grid will be rendered using the data in localStorage while refreshing. Please refer our online demo for State Maintenance in Grid.
Please let us know if we misunderstood your requirement and please provide us more information regarding your requirement and the information provided would be more helpful for us to analyze the issue and provide you the solution as early as possible.
