Hello!

I'm having problems with accessing a radgrids columns manually added from source code, I have loads of columns, and I don't want to repeat myself, adding the Width and change the headertext, according to my algorithm manually on each column.

Therefore I've been trying to find a way to set them automatically in the codebehind, however I am having problems accessing all the columns and settings.

The columns is as said not generated automatically.

Any idea?

Before When I have had the columns auto generated I have easily achieved this by using the Event ColumnCreated

 protected void radGrid_ColumnCreated(object sender, GridColumnCreatedEventArgs e)
{
                e.Column.HeaderStyle.Width = 200;
                e.Column.ItemStyle.Width = 200;
                e.Column.HeaderText = "test";
               e.Column.UniqueName = "test2"
}

Now I want to do the same but with manually added columns? (The ColumnCreated event is only triggered when the columns are auto generated, sadly =()

So something like this, by what I assume listening to the ItemDataBound event?

protected void radGrid_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{
      //Set column Width and Height and also the columns Header text and Unique name.
 }


Appreciate any help :) Hope I made it clear enough to understand :)

Solved it myself using the PreRender event connected to the gridview

Eg.

protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)          
{
        foreach (GridColumn col in RadGrid1.Columns)
        {
          col.HeaderStyle.Width = 600;
        }
}
