Fixed width for a grid column, remaining columns to autosize.

   So what I propose is a fixed width for a column of the grid (and locked) with the remaining columns auto-sizing.

In my situation, I have an action switch button where the client can delete a row, edit a row etc but the action code dropdown column needs to ALWAYS be the same width.  The rest of the columns should automatically size based on the existing behaviour.

   Now I have tried using the autosize for just that column, but I have to render the grid first, then run the autosize (which gives a fun show of resizing to the user) then all the columns become fixed width, but the vertical scroll bar doesn't move and stays in its initial position.

Hello Peter,

You can take advantage of the AutoFitColumns(IEnumerable<string> ids) method in order to autofit multiple columns. In your case, you can autofit all columns but the one with the Action switch. It would remain the same static width as set in the markup of the component.

Does this method fulfill the needs of your application?
