GridListControl - Unpredictable Row Header Height

Hi, I have a couple of GridListControl objects on forms. All GridListControls are initialized using DataBinding. What is strange is the way the controls determine the row header height. Some are fine, others have a row header heigth twice the height of normal data rows. Is there any way I can prevent this? Is there anything I could look for in my code in order to prevent this? BTW: All controls are hosted within TabControlAdv controls. The tab controls have anchors left, right, top, bottom. So do the contained GridListControl instances. Any help would be appreciated Regards Kai Iske

You should be able to explicitly set the title row height with code like: this.gridListControl1.Grid.RowHeights[0] = 50; You can try using resize to fit to set the heights as well. this.gridListControl1.Grid.RowHeights.ResizeToFit(GridRangeInfo.Row(0), GridResizeToFitOptions.IncludeHeaders); What might be going on is that the gridlistcontrol is being parented before its parent is finally situated, and all this is being done while both the gridlistcontrol and its parent are not visible.

Clay, thanks for the hint. However what I haven''t mentioned is that I assign a custom ITypedList to the DataSource of the GridListControls. The list in turn returns names of properties including spaces. What I believe is happening is that the grid attempts to WordWrap the header row cell texts and thus enlarges the row height. When I manually set the row height or force it to autofit it doesn''t do anything. BTW: Speaking about the ITypedList and custom names: The grid uses the PropertyDescriptor.Name property for the row header''s cell text. Wouldn''t it be better to use PropertyDescriptor.DisplayName? Maybe something worthwhile considering for the next release. Thanks Kai

Clay, as an addition: I have now changed my custom property names to no longer include spaces: It works fine now. However I would prefer using the "spaced" property names. If there is any way you could think of fixing this issue, please let me know. Thanks in advance Regards Kai

You might try setting: this.gridListControl1.Grid.BaseStylesMap["Column Header"].StyleInfo.WrapText = false; to see if this will allow you to have spaces in your names without causing the text to wrap.

Good point. Didn''t think about "patching" the base style. Thanks Kai
