    Currently, a fix column width needs to be set in order to display the largest number in a data view. If this is not properly set some digits are hidden, misleading the users. However, the largest number possibly displayed can change a lot based on the screen selection. Therefore, a large column width needs to be set to account for unfrequent but possible very large screen selections, wasting precious space.

     

    It is true that the users have the ability to manually adjust the column width. However, sometimes this is difficult to be done, quite tedious if there are many columns to be adjusted, and temporary as the default column width will be applied any time the screen refreshes.  

     

    Ideally, I would like to be able to set a min and max width per column. So the column width is adjusted dynamically (within a range) based on the data rendered and the min and max width set.
