End users are allowed to resize columns if the view’s TableView.AllowResizing property is set to true. Individual columns provide the AllowResizing property, allowing the default behavior specified by the view, to be overridden. Setting this property to true or false overrides the default behavior. This can be useful when it is required to prevent an end user from resizing individual columns.

If the AllowResizing property is set to Default, the ability to resize columns is controlled by the view’s TableView.AllowResizing property. In this instance, to obtain whether an end user can resize a column, use the BaseColumn.ActualAllowResizing property.
