TreeListOptionsView.AutoWidth Property

Gets or sets whether the widths of column is automatically adjusted so that the total width of all the columns matches the Tree List's width.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraTreeList

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraTreeList.v20.1.dll

Declaration

[DefaultValue(true)]
[XtraSerializableProperty]
public virtual bool AutoWidth { get; set; }
<DefaultValue(True)>
<XtraSerializableProperty>
Public Overridable Property AutoWidth As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean

true

true to enable the column auto width feature; otherwise, false.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Library Object Type Path to AutoWidth
WinForms Controls GanttControl
.OptionsView.AutoWidth
GanttControl
.OptionsView.AutoWidth
ResourcesTree
.OptionsView.AutoWidth
TreeList
.OptionsView.AutoWidth
Reporting XRDesignFieldList
.OptionsView.AutoWidth
XRDesignReportExplorer
.OptionsView.AutoWidth

Remarks

If the column's TreeListOptionsColumn.FixedWidth property is set to true, the column's width isn't changed when the auto width feature is enabled.

Example

The following example creates a TreeList at runtime and shows how to perform basic customization tasks:

  • Bind the treelist to a data source
  • Specify the key fields that form a hierarchy
  • Access automatically created columns
  • Set a custom row height
  • Customize column captions (using HTML tags) and cell appearance settings
  • Create unbound columns and create Excel-style format conditions based on these column values
  • Assign an in-place editor (a spin editor) to columns
  • Sort data
  • Calculate total summaries
  • Filter nodes
  • Hide columns and calculate column "best" widths
  • Locate and expand nodes
  • Focus a specific cell
  • Specify DataAnnotation attributes at the data source level (the "p0" display format for the MarketShare field)
