Grid Border Displays over the Table

Environment

Product Progress Kendo UI Grid
Progress Kendo UI version all

Description

If the scrolling of the Grid is disabled and the columns or rows do fit, they overflow the <div> element of the Grid. As a result, the right or bottom border of the widget shows through the table cells. How can I avoid this?

Cause

The vertical overflowing of the table occurs if:

  • The scrolling of the Grid is disabled, and
  • The Grid has an explicit height that is smaller than the space occupied by the table.

The horizontal overflowing of the table occurs if:

  • The scrolling of the Grid is disabled, and
  • The columns cannot fit in the available horizontal space that is determined by the width of the Grid parent.

The Grid is a <table> inside a <div> element. While tables are able to expand horizontally beyond 100% to enclose their content, the <div> elements lack this behavior.

Solution

To fix this issue, apply the following approaches for:

Vertical Overflowing

To fix the vertical overflowing of the Grid, use any of the following approaches:

  • Enable the scrolling functionality of the Grid. It is active by default except when using the Kendo UI Grid MVC wrapper (for historical and backwards compatibility reasons).
  • Remove the height of the Grid. Apply a height for the Grid only if the scrolling of the Grid is enabled.
  • Apply an overflow:auto style to the <div> of the Grid, that is, to the <div class="k-widget k-grid"> element. Use this approach only if the previous ones are unacceptable.

Horizontal Overflowing

To fix the horizontal overflowing of the Grid, use any of the following approaches:

  • Enable the scrolling functionality of the Grid. It is active by default except when using the Kendo UI Grid MVC wrapper (for historical and backwards compatibility reasons).
  • Set a width that is large enough to display the content of the Grid or set a min-width style to the <div> of the Grid, that is, to the <div class="k-widget k-grid"> element.
  • Apply a display:table or display:table-cell style to the <div> of the Grid.
  • Float the Grid wrapper and clear the float right after the widget. Floated elements expand and shrink automatically to enclose their content when needed. Use this approach only if the previous ones are unacceptable.
