TreeListColumn.GetHeaderBestWidth() Method

Returns the column header width that allows the content to be displayed in its entirety.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraTreeList.Columns

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraTreeList.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public int GetHeaderBestWidth()
Public Function GetHeaderBestWidth As Integer

Returns

Type Description
Int32

An integer value that specifies the width.

Remarks

The TreeListColumn.GetHeaderBestWidth and TreeList.GetColumnHeaderBestWidth(TreeListColumn) methods return the header width that allows the header content to be displayed in its entirety. For example, since different skins may have different optimal header widths, you can use these methods to recalculate a column's width when the current skin changes.

Examples

The code below shows how to automatically update the column width when look and feel settings change.

treeList1.LookAndFeel.StyleChanged += LookAndFeel_StyleChanged;

private void LookAndFeel_StyleChanged(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    treeListColumn1.Width = treeListColumn1.GetHeaderBestWidth();
    //treeListColumn1.Width = treeList1.GetColumnHeaderBestWidth(treeListColumn1);
}
