Property Value

Type Default Description
Int32 20

An integer representing a row item’s width.


Use the Width property to specify a particular row item width within a multi-editor row. The row item’s width applies to both the header and data cells’ width. Note that the Width property does not specify the actual width of a header/data cell in pixels, instead it is expressed proportionally as part of the overall width.

The value of the Width property is a partial expression - the widths of header/data cells are set proportionally with respect to the Width property of each multi-editor row item provided that their total width is equal to the VGridControlBase.RowHeaderWidth property.

Generally, the actual width (in pixels) of a particular row item’s header cell can be calculated using the following formula:

Row item width in pixels = MultiEditorRowProperties.Width * (VGridControlBase.RowHeaderWidth / (Sum of MultiEditorRowProperties.Width values of all row items))

In a similar manner the actual width (in pixels) can be calculated for an individual row item’s data cell:

Row item width in pixels = MultiEditorRowProperties.Width * (VGridControlBase.RecordWidth / (Sum of MultiEditorRowProperties.Width values of all row items))

The image below demonstrates how the Width values set for row items can be represented in pixels.


Row item width can be modified by end-users and via code. End-users can change the width of a row item by dragging a multi editor cell separator related to the row item. Row resizing is allowed for end-users only if the multi-editor row’s VGridOptionsRow.AllowSize option is enabled. Unlike end-users, you can modify the width of row items programmatically regardless of the VGridOptionsRow.AllowSize option setting.

When resizing a row item and changing the Width property either via code or by dragging a cell separator, the row item doesn’t become shorter than the width specified in the MultiEditorRowProperties.MinWidth property. So the Width property cannot be set to a value less than the MultiEditorRowProperties.MinWidth property.

Each time the row item width is successfully changed either by end-users or via code, the grid control sequentially generates the following two events: VGridControlBase.RowChanging and VGridControlBase.RowChanged. You can handle these events to perform specific actions before and after a row item’s width changes.
