List Grid View column width

​I really like the List Grid View control, especially being able to select the specific fields and adding a query to limit what is returned. I have a List Grid View control that I have set the width to 500 and am only returning 1 field (single line of text, up to 255 characters). When I view the data, the field is being truncated, even though there is plenty of space displaying. I can move the bar over so it will all display, but I would like the display to show all it can for the width provided. All of the data also displays if I hover over. It's frustrating to only see the beginning part of the field when there is space available in the control.

Hi Julie,

it just impossible to figure out the length of a control depending on a dynamic data, but  the user can expand the column and shrink its width using the mouse, just click on the column border and shift it to the right or to the left, this way the user will be able to control the view himself.

​Yes, I understand they can shift the border to the left or right but the users we have won't do that. And if the LGV control width is 500 and there is only 1 column being returned, why doesn't it display the entire width?
