ListView column width does not obey the width setting

Dear All,

ListView column width does not obey the width setting as shown in the following screen captures. Can anybody help me solve this problem?

I set the width of the date column to 426.


The form in runtime.

    Hi @BenTam-3003 , Welcome to Microsoft Q&A,

    After my test,

    You probably have adaptive width enabled somewhere.

    For example:


    It is very likely that you made the listview adaptive to the matrix.

    enter image description here

    try setting it manually

    listView.Columns[0].Width = 465;

    This way it turns off autoresize。

    Best Regards,
