Fit grid column widths to content


I am currently fiddling around with the Blazor UI, mainly the grid. I was wondering if it is possible to configure the grid to automatically fit the columns to the contents they have?


Meaning that the width of the header and the content cells of a given column are automatically set to a value which best fits either the cells content or the header title (depending on what takes up more space).


Best Regards,

I was also following this item because we also need this in our application. But I'm wondering if I got the feature request wrong or if Telerik just didn't implement it the way it should have been according to the request.

With this new feature, the user has to double-click the column to set the width, but I (and I think also Karl) was looking for kind of an "autofit" parameter (or Width="auto" value, etc) which forces the Grid to perform this resizing after data is loaded -> also see the request, which was marked as "duplicated" for this request:

Or am I just missing some documentation and this was released with 2.23.0?


Thanks and Best Regards,

I would like to add that I would like to set the width to the Header or the width of the Data in the cells. 
Sometimes the cells are too wide but their headers seem to be a must.

Hello Karl,

The default grid behavior in terms of column widths is explained here: and it stems from the table-layout: fixed CSS rule the grid has by default. Even if you override it to "auto", the cells in the content may fit their texts, but the headers will go out of alignment, because, under the covers, they are in a separate table, so both of them can't affect each other directly or with CSS alone. Such functionality will require a JavaScript implementation on our end.

I have also moved this thread to the Feedback Portal so you can Follow its status. Here's a link for you:
