How to auto-size the rows to fill the grid's height

Environment

Product Version 2018.3.911
Product RadGridView for WinForms

Description

RadGridView allows you to adjust the columns' width automatically to fill the entire width of the control. This is controlled by the AutoSizeColumnsMode property. This article will demonstrate a sample approach how to achieve a similar functionality for the rows. In other words, it shows how to adjust the rows' height to fill the height of the control.

Solution

The TableElement.RowHeight property controls the height of the rows in the grid. The following code snippet calculates the RowHeight considering the current size of RadGridView and rows count:


        public RadForm1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();

            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            dt.Columns.Add("Id", typeof(int));
            dt.Columns.Add("Name", typeof(string));
            for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
            {
                dt.Rows.Add(i, "Item" + i);
            }
            this.radGridView1.DataSource = dt;
            this.radGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill;

            this.radGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill;
            this.radGridView1.ShowGroupPanel = false;
            this.radGridView1.EnableFiltering = false;
            this.radGridView1.AllowAddNewRow = false;
            this.radGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill;
            this.radGridView1.SizeChanged += radGridView1_SizeChanged;
        }

        private void radGridView1_SizeChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            AdjustRowHeight();
        }

        private void AdjustRowHeight()
        {
            int rowHeight = (this.radGridView1.Size.Height - this.radGridView1.TableElement.TableHeaderHeight) / this.radGridView1.ChildRows.Count;
            if (rowHeight > 0)
            {
                this.radGridView1.TableElement.RowHeight = rowHeight;
            }
        }

        private void RadForm1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            AdjustRowHeight();
        }


    Sub New()

        InitializeComponent()

        Me.RadGridView1.DataSource = Nothing
        Dim dt As DataTable = New DataTable()
        dt.Columns.Add("Id", GetType(Integer))
        dt.Columns.Add("Name", GetType(String))

        For i As Integer = 0 To 5 - 1
            dt.Rows.Add(i, "Item" & i)
        Next

        Me.RadGridView1.DataSource = dt
        Me.RadGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill
        Me.RadGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill
        Me.RadGridView1.ShowGroupPanel = False
        Me.RadGridView1.EnableFiltering = False
        Me.RadGridView1.AllowAddNewRow = False
        Me.RadGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.Fill
        AddHandler Me.RadGridView1.SizeChanged, AddressOf radGridView1_SizeChanged

    End Sub

    Private Sub radGridView1_SizeChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        AdjustRowHeight()
    End Sub

    Private Sub AdjustRowHeight()
        Dim rowHeight As Integer = (Me.RadGridView1.Size.Height - Me.RadGridView1.TableElement.TableHeaderHeight) / Me.RadGridView1.ChildRows.Count

        If rowHeight > 0 Then
            Me.RadGridView1.TableElement.RowHeight = rowHeight
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub RadForm1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        AdjustRowHeight()
    End Sub

note

If some of the system rows are displayed as well, their height should participate in the calculation. You can access a system row by the respective property exposed in the MasterView.
