Hi all.
I have a MDI application which display data in a list of Columns .

Eg, when you open MyDocuments and view the folders in Detail View, you will notice that the data is displayed under each colums.
_________________________________________________
Name       |   Size   |   Type     |               Data Modified
---------------------------------------------------------------------
My Music    ....               .....                 ................
.....            ....           .......                  ..................

Now each of the Columns can be resized by Draggin the Division back and forth (eg, division between Name and Size).

In one the windows in my app, i am unable to resize the Columns .  How should i go about doing this......

Thanks

To prevent controls resizing list control must be customized:

Maybe program code contains something like this?

Well,
in my case i have a cutom window app and the header widths are already fixed depending on the number of colums.
Does anyone have code or point me to some code so that i can make the headers resizable during run time

Are you attempting to make some other application program do this?  
Or...
Do you have the source code of this application and you want to change its behavior?

UGrid - if you mean ultimate grid (Dundas software) then you should have the source code.  You will need to investigate that to find out why it can't be resized (possibly a flag needs to be set)
