Name Type Description
column TreeListColumn

An object that specifies the column for which to calculate the width.


Type Description

An integer value that specifies the width.


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.


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);
