But looks like, that algorithm will set all the columns to max, that could waste my other column area.

Can we do that at runtime, depending on the text length, the size of the column should change

In the website, ther are setting the longest column element to the datagrid, that means all the columns width will be adjusted to the longest column size. So, its waste of space and the grid view is going out of screen. Please let me know if we can adjust the column width depending on the data. Like the first column be "Thomas" and the next be "He works at IBM", in this example the datagrid column width for 2nd column will be more than the 1st. Please let me know if this is possible.

the column width can only be one size.  

if you are asking whether or not each CELL has its own size depending on the data within it.....i highly doubt it, and ive never seen or heard of that done.  

>>"Like the first column be "Thomas" and the next be "He works at IBM", in this example the datagrid column width for 2nd >>column will be more than the 1st. Please let me know if this is possible."

im having trouble understanding this....do you mean column or row within a column?

either way, i dont think its possible to adjust the width of every cell in a  datagrid.....and even if you could, aestetically speaking, that would be pretty unorganized and messy looking way to represent data
