Hi, How can I set the grid so that the user can only resize the column header vertically (only the first row must be resizable)? In the ResizeRowsBehavior I only see Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridResizeCellsBehavior.IgnoreHeaders which is the opposite of what I need to do. Thank

If you want to do special hit testing to decide exactly when you want to allow sizing, you should set the insidegrid flag in the ResizingCOlsBehavior property and handle the ResizingColumns event. Here is code that only allows resizing in row 1.
private void gridDataBoundGrid1_ResizingColumns(object sender, GridResizingColumnsEventArgs e)
	if(e.Reason == GridResizeCellsReason.HitTest)
		int row, col;
		if(this.gridDataBoundGrid1.PointToRowCol(e.Point, out row, out col)
			&& row != 1)
			e.Cancel = true;

Great! And how would I set a minimum size? I don’t want the user to hide the column header and not be able to see it (for some reason, when the user resizes the header to 0, he can not resize it to see it again).

You can handle ColWidthChanging and cancel the changes if necessary. You would also want to handle ColumnsHiding to prevent the user from hiding the column by sizing it to zero (if you want to avoid this).
private void gridControl1_ColWidthsChanging(object sender, GridRowColSizeChangingEventArgs e)
        if(e.From == 2 && e.Values[0] > 200 || e.Values[0] < 50)
              e.Cancel = true;
Here is a sample.
