Grid Sizing

This feature attempts to address the need for a Compact Grid, which renders more items by utilizing the available space, mainly through setting smaller padding in its cells.

You can increase or decrease the size of the Grid by setting the Size attribute to a member of the Telerik.Blazor.ThemeConstants.Grid.Size.Size class:

Class members Manual declarations
Small sm
Medium
default value
md

Changing the Size property affects different building blocks of the component (tables, buttons, inputs, dropdowns, and others).

The built-in Size modes

@* These are all built-in Size modes *@

@{ 
    var fields = typeof(Telerik.Blazor.ThemeConstants.Grid.Size)
        .GetFields(System.Reflection.BindingFlags.Public | System.Reflection.BindingFlags.Static
        | System.Reflection.BindingFlags.FlattenHierarchy)
        .Where(field => field.IsLiteral && !field.IsInitOnly).ToList();

    foreach (var field in fields)
    {
        string size = field.GetValue(null).ToString();

        <TelerikGrid Size="@size"
                     Data="@GridData"
                     Height="350px">
            <GridColumns>
                <GridColumn Field="ID"></GridColumn>
                <GridColumn Field="TheName" Title="Employee Name"></GridColumn>
            </GridColumns>
        </TelerikGrid>
        <br />
    }
}
@code {
    private IEnumerable<object> GridData = Enumerable.Range(1, 50).Select(x => new { ID = x, TheName = "name " + x });
}

Notes

  1. The Size option does not affect elements displayed inside a PopUp (such as Filter Menu, Column Menu, etc.). By design, all PopUp elements are rendered on root level, so they are not technically inside the Grid. Thus, the Size option cannot propagate to them. Тo change the Size options of the elements inside PopUps, you can use a template(where available), so you can override the built-in rendering. You can then add custom elements and explicitly specify their Size.

  2. The Size option does not propagate to components rendered inside templates (this includes elements in GridToolBar, CommandColumn, etc.). To change the size of the elements in those components you have to set it explicitly.

Set GridCommandButton Size option

<TelerikGrid Size="@ThemeConstants.Grid.Size.Small"
             Data="@GridData"
             Height="350px">
    <GridToolBarTemplate>
        <GridCommandButton Size="@ThemeConstants.Button.Size.Small">Custom Command</GridCommandButton>
    </GridToolBarTemplate>
    <GridColumns>
        <GridColumn Field="ID"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field="TheName" Title="Employee Name"></GridColumn>
        <GridCommandColumn>
            <GridCommandButton Size="@ThemeConstants.Button.Size.Small">Custom Command</GridCommandButton>
        </GridCommandColumn>
    </GridColumns>
</TelerikGrid>

@code {
    private IEnumerable<object> GridData = Enumerable.Range(1, 50).Select(x => new { ID = x, TheName = "name " + x });
}
