Property Value

Type Description
BestFitMode

A BestFitMode enumeration value.

Available values:

Name Description
Default

If this mode is assigned to the ColumnBase.BestFitMode of a grid column, this means that it obtains its value from the TableView.BestFitMode property of the owner view.

AllRows

The column width is calculated based on text of all cells within this column.

VisibleRows

The column width is calculated based on the values in the currently visible cells.

DistinctValues

The column width is calculated based on all distinct values in the underlying datasource.

Smart

In this mode, the column width is calculated as BestFitMode.AllRows if the total count of rows is less than 3,000, and as BestFitMode.DistinctValues if the total count of rows is greater than or equal to 3,000. Also, if the Smart mode is enabled, the TableView.CustomBestFit is raised, thus allowing you to manually calculate the column width.

Remarks

The default behavior of all columns displayed within a View, is specified by the TableView.BestFitMode property. The BestFitMode property allows you to override this behavior for individual columns.
