ui.igGridResizing

ui.igGridResizing_image

Both the igGrid and igHierarchicalGrid controls feature the ability to resize columns. Users can choose to arbitrarily adjust the width of a column or double-click the right border of the column to expand it to the width of the longest string in the column. Further information regarding the classes, options, events, methods and themes of this API are available under the associated tabs above.

The following code snippet demonstrates how to initialize the igGrid control.
