Hi,

I am using WPF data grid in one of my projects, I have 2 columns in the datagrid. I have to set the width of each column dynamically. I mean i have 2 properties called Col1Width and col2 Width

Ex.

Public int Col1Width{get; set;}
public int col2Width{get;set;}

i will set the values to Col1Width and Col2Width in the constructor.

in my Xaml, I have written the below statement

<datagrid>
    <datagridtextcolumn header="Col 1" width="{Binding Path=Col1Width, Mode=TwoWay}"
    <datagridtextcolumn header="Col 2" width="{Binding Path=Col2Width, Mode=TwoWay}"
</datagrid>

But i am unable to get the column width changed. Can anyone guide me in getting the above requirement

Thanks,
Raj

don't forget that a grid is much more complex then a textbox

It looks like the data property is an int. Width is a double and this will cause a binding error in a GridViewColumn width.
