Render ASP.NET GridView Control with Resizable Column Header

Make the column headers of ASP.NET GridView control user-resizable with this three easy steps.
  1. Download the JavaScript file from here.
  2. Include the JavaScript file into your ASPX page.
  3. Finally, initialize the component for your GridView control by inserting this JavaScript code at the end of your ASPX page.
    var _ResizeTableHeaderDecorator = new ResizeTableHeaderDecorator({ GridID: "<%=GridView1.ClientID %>" });
    Replace "GridView1" by the ID of the GridView control you want to enable column resizing.
It's that easy. It is tested to work with IE 8, Firefox 3.5, Safari and Chrome. This feature will soon be integrated with CoolGridView ASP.NET control. Here is a live example.
