Always Fill?

Asked On September 4, 2016 01:56 AM UTC

I am using an SfDataGrid in a UWP application.  I would like the grid always to fill, horizontally, a cell in a parent grid (not a data grid - just a Windows grid).  I have five columns, which can all be the same width.  (I'd prefer to set the widths proportionally using something like "*", "2*", etc., but that's less important.)  I would like to set a minimum width on the grid columns and, if the space is too narrow a scroll bar would appear and if it's too wide the columns stretch to fill the space.  Despite my many attempts and many combinations/permutations, I have been unable to make this happen.  Help would be much appreciated.

Hi Bradley, 

We have analyzed your query and you can achieve your requirement by overriding the Refresh method in GridColumnSizer like below code example. 

public MainPage() 
    this.dataGrid.GridColumnSizer = new GridColumnSizerExt(this.dataGrid); 
public class GridColumnSizerExt:GridColumnSizer 
    public GridColumnSizerExt(SfDataGrid dataGrid) : base(dataGrid) { } 
    protected override void Refresh(double AvailableWidth) 
        var visualContainer = this.DataGrid.GetVisualContainer(); 
        if(AvailableWidth > visualContainer.ScrollColumns.ViewSize) 
            DataGrid.ColumnSizer = GridLengthUnitType.Star; 

We also prepared the same and you can download the sample from below location. 


Please refer the below link to know more about column sizer.
