Phenomenon

Autosize Width of Grid DataWindow Columns does not work during Runtime.

Scenario

Create a Grid DataWindow.

·  Change the Width Autosize property of any column(s).

·  Save the changes.

·  If you now open the Source Code of the DataWindow (Edit Source), you will see that the property was saved.

·  But, if you open the DataWindow again in Design View, the change is not shown even though it is there.

Workaround

  1. Change the property during runtime:
    PowerBuilder dot notation: dw_control.Object.columname.Width.AutoSize
    or
    Describe and Modify argument: "controlname.Width.AutoSize { = ' value ' }"
    **more info here .
  2. Now the DataWindow should respect the Width AutoSize.
