Is there a way to determine the width of each column in a TDBGrid.

If a user has resized one or more columns I want to know the new widths.

I am using D1 and WFW 3.11

DBGrid1.Columns[i].Width (where i is a column number from 0 to Count)

Hi Matvey - I tried that, but I get the error "Field Identifier expected".  It won't recognise the Columns property.

The correct answer should be

 dbGrid1.fields[ n].displayWidth:= w

This will change the width of column n to w characters width;

Hi, I'm sorry, didn't see that it's D1. My answere was for D2 and 3, but I guess it wasn't yet implemented in D1...

Cheers.
