Problem


How can I make the last column fill the rest of the window's area? In other words, I don't want an empty gray area to appear after the last column.


Cause



Action


You should override GetColWidth() as follows:

int CDaoQueryView::GetColWidth(ROWCOL nCol)
{
int nWidth = CGXGridCore::GetColWidth(nCol);

// Make the last column fill the rest of
// the window so that no empty space is
// visible.
if (!IsPrinting() && nCol == GetColCount())
{

CRect rect = GetGridRect();
nCol = GetClientCol(nCol);

if (nCol > 0)

nWidth = max(nWidth, rect.Width() - CalcSumOfClientColWidths(0, nCol-1) - 1);
}

return nWidth;

}

This could be done the same way with GetRowHeight().
