GridViewColumn.Width Property


Gets or sets the width of the column.

 property double Width { double get(); void set(double value); };
public double Width { get; set; }
member this.Width : double with get, set
Public Property Width As Double

Property Value

The width of the column. The default is NaN, which automatically sizes to the largest column item that is not the column header.



The following example shows how to set the Width property.

GridViewColumn gvc1 = new GridViewColumn();
gvc1.DisplayMemberBinding = new Binding("FirstName");
gvc1.Header = "FirstName";
gvc1.Width = 100;
Dim gvc1 As New GridViewColumn()
gvc1.DisplayMemberBinding = New Binding("FirstName")
gvc1.Header = "FirstName"
gvc1.Width = 100
<GridViewColumn DisplayMemberBinding=
                    "{Binding Path=FirstName}" 
                Header="First Name" Width="100"/>


To get the exact width when this property is set to Double.NaN, use the ActualWidth property.

XAML Attribute Usage

<object Width="qualifiedDouble"/>

<object Width="Auto"/>  

XAML Values


String representation of a Double value. This is interpreted as a device-independent unit (1/96th inch) measurement. Strings need not explicitly include decimal points. For instance a value of 1 is acceptable.

A double value as described above, followed by one of the following unit declaration strings: px, in, cm, pt.

px (default) is device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit)

in is inches; 1in==96px

cm is centimeters; 1cm==(96/2.54) px

pt is points; 1pt==(96/72) px

Enables autosizing behavior. See Remarks.
