Set full RadGrid height depending on row count


When scrolling is enabled, the scroll area of the grid has a fixed scroll height of 300px. This causes a blank space to appear if the item count is too low.


If you want the grid to have its height automatically adjusted to its records, you can set an empty value to the following property:

<Scrolling ScrollHeight="" />

You can also set this property programmaticaly to Unit.Empty:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!IsPostBack)
        RadGrid1.ClientSettings.Scrolling.ScrollHeight = Unit.Empty;
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    If Not IsPostBack Then
        RadGrid1.ClientSettings.Scrolling.ScrollHeight = Unit.Empty
    End If
End Sub

Alternatively, if you want to set a percentage height to the grid, you can follow the steps provided here:'s-height-in-percents
