    Width Property (Column)
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets the width of cells in this column.
    Public Property Width As Single
    Dim instance As Column
    Dim value As Single
    instance.Width = value
    value = instance.Width
    public float Width {get; set;}

    Property Value

    Value of the width in pixels
    Specified width is out of range; must be between -1 and 9,999,999 pixels

    This is equivalent to the SheetView.SetColumnWidth method. For more information on setting the size of the column, refer to Setting the Row Height or Column Width.

    Column widths can be based on the data in the cells using the GetPreferredWidth method or SheetView.GetPreferredColumnWidth method. For more information, see Resizing the Row and Column to Fit the Data.

    You can allow users to resize columns by setting the Resizable property. If the user is allowed to resize columns, when the user resizes a column, the FpSpread.ColumnWidthChanged and SheetView.ColumnChanged events occur.

    This example determines the width of the column based on the text in the first cell.
    Dim col As FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column
    Dim size As Single
    col = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns(0)
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(0, 0).Text = "This text will be used to determine the width of the column"
    size = col.GetPreferredWidth()
    col.Width = size
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.Column col;
    float size;
    col = fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Columns[0];
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[0, 0].Text = "This text will be used to determine the width of the column";
    size = col.GetPreferredWidth();
    col.Width = size;
