I need to be able to set the column width within a
CMsDGridCtrl.  I can set the default column width,
but need to be able to change each column individually.
I am using MFC and Visual C++

U can set the column with for each column seperately using the following function.
CGridCtrl::SetColWidth(nColumn, nWidth);

When I try to use this I am told that SetColWidth is
not a member of CMsDGridCtrl.
CMsDGridCtrl is of type CWnd and is an OCX
found with Visual Basic 5.
I'm not sure this is any use to me.
CGridCtrl::SetColWidth(nColumn, nWidth);

any other ideas would be appreciated.

Does CMsDGridCtrl derived from the CWnd?
When u import the grid control from the component gallary there are
one .cpp( usally Gridctrl) and a .h files will be added to ur project.
in the newly added  files u will be finding out the  SetColWidth function declaration(.h) and definition( .cpp).
Which intern calls the  CWnd::InvokeHelper function.

I feel u have't included the .cpp and .h file in ur project that could be the reason.
I think this is the answer u want.

u can reply to my email id - govindm@teil.soft.net

HI uanmi,

Do u want to set the column width for each column once or u want to change often?
If u want to set the column width only once, there is an option

Set the default width to 0(zero) then it takes the column width as the header length as the column width. so if u want to have the column like "Data" and if u need width is larger than  header length change the header as  "          Data                  ".
This u can set individually for all columns.

uanmi,

You need to get the column you want from the columns collection and resize the column via its SetWidth method. Here's an example.

CColumns columns = m_grid.GetColumns();
CColumn column = columns.GetItem(COleVariant((short)0, VT_I2));
column.SetWidth(17);
