How to resize the column widths or row heights to entire text in a cell is visible in WinForms GridControl?
Resizing the column width and row height
To resize the columns for the text to be visible, you can use the grid.Model.ColWidths.ResizeToFit method. This method takes two arguments, the GridRangeInfo object that specifies the cells to be resized and the GridResizeToFitOptions setting that specifies certain behaviors. The last setting controls whether to allow the shrinking of the cell when it is resized and whether to include any header cell in the resizing.
To resize the row heights, you can use the grid.Model.RowHeights.ResizeToFit method.
//Sets the ResizeToFit for rows 1 to 5. this.gridControl1.Model.RowHeights.ResizeToFit(GridRangeInfo.Rows(1,5), GridResizeToFitOptions.NoShrinkSize); //Sets the ResizeToFit for Column 2. this.gridControl1.Model.ColWidths.ResizeToFit(GridRangeInfo.Col(2), GridResizeToFitOptions.NoShrinkSize);
'Sets the ResizeToFit for rows 1 to 5. Me.gridControl1.Model.RowHeights.ResizeToFit(GridRangeInfo.Rows(1,5), GridResizeToFitOptions.NoShrinkSize) 'Sets the ResizeToFit for Column 2. Me.gridControl1.Model.ColWidths.ResizeToFit(GridRangeInfo.Col(2), GridResizeToFitOptions.NoShrinkSize)
Resizing the entire grid with large grids can be time consuming. To resize only the visible areas of the grid, you can set the range argument to the grid.ViewLayout.VisibleCellsRange.
