Virtual GridControl Column sizing to fit entire clientsize

Im evaluating the latest SyncFusion's grid control to display 4 columns and millions of rows of data in virtual mode.

The rows seems to be displayed fine, but I now want to be able to have the 4 columns always span the entire ClientSize.Width of the gridControl (even when GridControl is resized).

Colunmns 1,2 and 4 can be of a specified width say 65 pixels. But I want Column 3 to grow/shrink as the GridControl is resized but never be smaller than 65 pixels. If the gridcontrol.clientsize.width is less (65*4) pixels then a scrollbar should appear to display the hidden column(s).

Is functionality supported? How would I go about doing this?

Hi Vinod,

Please refer the following KnowledgeBase Article that shows you "How can I have my grid auto adjust column widths so that the columns completely fill the grid's client area?".


Best regards,

I had to convert the GridDataBoundGrid component to GridControl and it worked for me. Looks like we will buying this control :)

Thanks Haneef

Hello Haneef,
Thank you very kindly for providing helpful information.  However, when using IE 9 on Win7, I too had the problem the OP is having and needed to access the KB link. 
However, when I clicked the KB link, nothing happened.  My browser went to the link but then immediately stopped loading the page and nothing appeared on the screen.  You wouldn't know what can be done to help that can you?
