is there no way to allow user to resize rows?

Unless I'm missing something, there doesn't appear to be an analogue to the CanUserResizeRows from the standard library WPF DataGrid and even with the row headers enabled, there's no way for a user to manually set the row height?

I have a use case where there may be many newlines in the data, so automatically resizing to show the whole of the row's data is not really ideal from a UX perspective, but I would expect the user to be able to resize the row if they wanted to.

Am I right in concluding that SfDataGrid doesn't allow this, and if not is it likely to gain this feature?

Hi Alex,  
Thank you for using Syncfusion controls.  
Currently SfDataGrid does not have a support for row resizing, so we have considered to provide support for “Row resizing support in SfDataGrid” in WPF and logged feature request for the same. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming release.   
At the planning stage for every release cycle, we review all open features and identify features for implementation based on specific parameters including product vision, technological feasibility, and customer interest. We will let you know when this feature is implemented. We appreciate your patience until then.  
Thank you for requesting this feature and helping us define it. We are always trying to make our products better and feature requests like yours are a key part of our product growth efforts.  
If you have any more specification/suggestions to the feature request, you can add it as a comment in the portal and cast your vote to make it count.

Kay Uwe Schreiner,

We regret the inconvenience caused.

Our SfDataGrid allows you to resize the row height depending on the content by using the SfDataGrid.QueryRowHeight event. For more information related to the available row height customizations, please refer to the below user guide documentation link,

We encourage you to upvote the feature request and provide more detailed specifications or suggestions for the feature in the feedback portal. You can also leave a comment in the portal to share your thoughts on this feature. Your input is valuable to us, and your vote can help to prioritize the feature in future releases.
