Property Value

Type Description

An integer value that specifies the number of records processed by a View to apply best fit.


Table Views provide the capability to automatically calculate and apply the optimal width required for a column to completely display its contents. To do this, use the TableView.BestFitColumn or TableView.BestFitColumns method. End-users can resize columns to their optimal width (if allowed) by double clicking their right border or using the column header context menu.

By default, a column’s optimal width is calculated based on the text of all cells within this column. To increase the application’s performance, the number of records taken into account when calculating the optimal width can be limited by setting the TableView.BestFitMaxRowCount (ColumnBase.BestFitMaxRowCount) property. By default, this property is set to -1, to indicate that all cells are processed. If the TableView.BestFitMaxRowCount property is set to a positive value, a View processes the specified number of cells starting from the top visible cell.
