Width Property (Column)

FarPoint.Win.Spread Assembly > FarPoint.Win.Spread Namespace > Column Class : Width Property
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;
