I don't know if that is available.  You should be able to drag it wider or narrower.

That's the problem. I don't want the user to need to drag it wider. I want to have it ready for them when they open the report.

I don't know of a property for the width.  You can turn it on or off.  I just tried playing with it and don't find a property or any way to control the width

I looked all over too. But I'm a beginner with Crystal Reports.

There does not seem to be any why to do this in Visual Studio 2005.

Finally answer this myself. This is how I got by trial and error:

crystalReportViewer1.Controls[2].Width = 300;

If someone knows the internal CR data name of the Group Tree please post it here. I tried "GroupTree," "group," and "tree."
