Hi,

I am using wpf data grid in one of my projects, i am setting the column width from my xaml.cs file

datagrid.columns[0].width = 100;
datagrid.columns[1].width = 200;

Now when i drag the column and increase the column width, check the column width it is still displaying me the old column width i.e. 100 and 200. But it should have given me the new column width as i have dragged the column and increased the width.

Can anyone help me in finding a way out of this.

Thanks,
Rajeeva

Is this real code? C# is case sensitive and "columns" does not exist for sure! Have you tried ActualWidth?

Hi rajeeva_nagaraj;

Perhaps this may be why it is always the same value. Try using ActualWidth.

From Microsoft Documentation:
The return value of this property is always the same as any value that was set to it. In contrast, the value of the ActualWidth may vary. The layout may have rejected the suggested size for some reason. Also, the layout system itself works asynchronously relative to the property system set of Width and may not have processed that particular sizing property change yet.
