I have a three level master-detail grid grouping control.

The columns for all three tables are the same, and I want to keep their widths in sync.

That is, when the user resizes a column, I'd like the same column in the child tables to resize to the same width.

How can this be achieved?

Hi Raul,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

You could use the TrackWidthOfParentColumn property of a column descriptor to ensure that columns are aligned and stay in synchronized with parent table.

Please refer the code below:

// The TrackWidthOfParentColumn propetry of a column descriptor ensures that
// columns are aligned and stay in sync.

// synchronize width of columns in child record with width of column in parent record.
for (int n = 0; n < 3; n++)
parentToChildRelationDescriptor.ChildTableDescriptor.Columns[n].TrackWidthOfParentColumn = gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns[n].Name;

///same for grandchild table.
for (int n = 0; n < 3; n++)
childToGrandChildRelationDescriptor.ChildTableDescriptor.Columns[n].TrackWidthOfParentColumn = parentToChildRelationDescriptor.ChildTableDescriptor.Columns[n].Name;

Also please refer the sample attached below:

Please let me know if this helps.
