Forms Data Controls :: GridView Column Set Fixed Width

Dec 27, 2010 04:27 PM

I am trying to set the width of each column within my gridview. Problem is that none of it is working. I have tried setting the whole grid view to 100% and then break down each individual column to a certain percentage, tried manually adjusting Header Width, Item Style width, tried setting it in code, I have tried just about everything and the column doesn't want to budge. The only time I can adjust the width of the column/cell is when I do it in SQL, but because they are requesting the tooltip to preview the comment I would like to pursue my options doing it on the page itself.

//Code protected void grdComments_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
{//Setting the tooltip for the comment column and column width.
grdComments.Columns[3].ItemStyle.Width = Unit.Pixel(100);
//e.Row.Cells[3].Width = Unit.Pixel(100);
e.Row.Cells[3].Wrap = false;
e.Row.Cells[3].Style["overflow"] = "hidden";
e.Row.Cells[3].Style["text-overflow"] = "ellipsis";
e.Row.Cells[3].ToolTip = e.Row.Cells[3].Text; }

Forms Data Controls :: Set The Columns Width To Fixed Value In Gridview?

Oct 25, 2010 09:19 PM

how to set the fixed value with the columns in a grid view? my code works fine if you have normal words with space. If the length of the whole field is more than its width, It would come to the next line. But If we type big word without any space like "WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW", It would by default increase the width and disturbs the layout.

Forms Data Controls :: How To Make Fixed Header In GridView

Jun 04, 2010 06:35 PM

I am able to put gridview inside asp:panel and scrolling works too. But the moment I down, the header of gridView scrolls above inside the panel and gets hidden.

I just want to scroll rows, not the header. How can I do that?. Following is what I am using.

On a side note, I have tried to wrap gridView in DIV but div doesn't show the scroll bars in the first load for some reason.

Forms Data Controls :: Unable To Set GridView Column Width

Sep 23, 2010 04:52 PM

I have been searching the internet for a solution to this for hours. I have tried all of the following methods to set the column width on my GridView control:

1. <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="ColumnHeader" ItemStyle-Width="100px">
2. <ItemStyle Width="100px" Wrap="False" />
3. GridView.Columns[0].ItemStyle.Width = 100 both on the PageLoad event and, out of desperation, on the RowDataBound event.

I have tried these settings by themselves and in combination. I have also experimented with different CSS width settings for the GridView and its containing <div> (including none) to no avail. The GridView columns are always equally spaced and wrap the row description text in the first column in a rather ugly fashion. As this needs to be fixed for a presentation to a client on Monday, I would be eternally grateful to anyone who could point me in the right direction.

Forms Data Controls :: How To Control Gridview's Column Width

Nov 24, 2009 07:48 AM

How do I control the gridview's column width wherein my gridview is dynamically populated from a dataset. What I want to achieve is to have a somewhat uniform column width for all column entries. I have already tried specifying the Itemstyle-width = "desired column" width but still the content of the dataset still dictates the final width of the column. When I also try to set the ItemStyle-Warp = false, it does not still give me the desired effect because it will just increase the column width to fit the content of the dataset. I think to achieve my desired effect and since some contents of the dataset are long, the solution would be to truncate the dataset prior to binding it to the gridview but I don't know how.

This is a column a large amount of text in it, and it keeps sizing to the width of the header text, which is simply "note". I don't want to set Wrap to false, becuase then the colummn could be thousands of px wide in cases.

Forms Data Controls :: Set Width Of Pager Different From Width Of GridView?

Oct 21, 2009 08:11 PM

I'm using a PagerTemplate w/ my GridView. The GridView sits inside a DIV tag that is about 70% of the screen. The width of the GridView is wider than the DIV tag so the DIV scrolls at the bottom from left to right. The pager is also fixed at the bottom of the screen. The problem is that the width of the pager is the same width as the GridView, so it extends all the way to the right and displays over the top of the vertical scrollbar. I want the width of the pager to equal the width of the DIV tag no matter how wide the grid is. I tried setting the width within the CssClass & the width properties of the <PagerStyle> to no avail and it doesn't seem to matter if I apply the style to fix the position of the pager or not.
