jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxGrid is used to illustrate a jQuery widget that shows data in tabular form. Moreover, it renders full support for connecting with data, as well as paging, grouping, sorting, filtering, and editing.

The autoresizecolumn() method is used to auto-resize a column of the displayed jqxGrid. It does not return anything.

Syntax:

$('#Selector').jqxGrid('autoresizecolumn', 'dataField');

Parameters:

  • dataField: It is the stated column’s data field. It is of type string.
  • all: It is used to resize the grid’s columns in order to fit the cells as well as the column header. It is an optional parameter and is of type string.
  • cells: It is used to resize the grid’s columns in order to fit the cell’s text. It is an optional parameter and is of type string.
  • column: It is used to resize columns in order to fit the text of the column. It is an optional parameter and is of type string.
