    DataAutoSizeColumns Property
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets whether a bound sheet automatically sizes its columns based on the data in the associated database fields.
    Public Property DataAutoSizeColumns As Boolean
    Dim instance As SheetView
    Dim value As Boolean
    instance.DataAutoSizeColumns = value
    value = instance.DataAutoSizeColumns
    public bool DataAutoSizeColumns {get; set;}

    Property Value

    Boolean: true if columns are sized automatically; false otherwise

    The width of the column is based on the data type of the field rather than the actual data in the column. Use GetPreferredColumnWidth to get the width of the widest text string in the column.

    If the SpreadScaleMode property is set to ZoomDpiSupport and DataAutoSizeColumns is false, columns and rows may be resized.

    This example sets whether the column size is automatically set based on the data in the database.
    string conStr = "Provider=Microsoft.JET.OLEDB.4.0;data source= " + Application.StartupPath + "\\Patients2000.mdb";
    string sqlStr = "SELECT * FROM Patients";

    DataSet ds = new DataSet(); 
    System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter da = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(sqlStr, conn);
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.DataAutoSizeColumns = true; 
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.DataMember = "Patients"; 
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.DataSource = ds;
