How to resize the column width and row height to client size?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl |

By default, the row height and column width is displayed in the GridControl in its default size. Therefore, when row count and column count is minimum than client size, the rows and columns are displayed as minimum and the remaining space is grayed. You can use the AllowProportionalColumnSizing property to set the column width as Client size. For more details, refer to this link: Resizing the Column width as Client size

Refer to the following screenshot.

You can resize the row height and column width as its client size, even when it is lesser than the client size by using two custom classes. You can use the following custom classes.

  • The GridColSizingHelper class includes the customization for column width resizing according to client size using QueryColWidth event.
  • The GridRowSizingHelper class includes the customization for row height resizing according to client size using QueryRowHeight event.
