    Hello MatthewV,

    Unfortunately, It is still same.
    Only if you want to escape ‘horizontal scrollbar’ could calculate the width of the whole widget and set exact width as sum of the columns

    This really should not be forced on people, it was requested over a year ago that this function become option and I will second that request. The vertical scroll wheel on a mouse has a standard function of moving up and down, your over riding that function and forcing the end users into an unconventional situation. Please add the ability to disable this so users can have a consistent and predictable experience

    Hello MatthewV,

    In case if disable this – “Horizontal Scrolling”. How will the information be available in invisible columns?
    I would like to suggest you set fixed size of the Grid and for the columns. Thus will escape ‘horizontal scrollbar’.

    Keeping a horizontal bar is fine, but having the vertical scroll wheel scroll horizontally is not. If a person wants to do horizontal scroll they should either do it with a horizontal wheel, found on some mouse, or by standard click/drag of the horizontal bar.

    I do not want to do a fixed with of potentially over 2000 pxs causing the grid to go off screen and screw up the entire layout of my site. That is just as bad a UI design as your grid horizontally scrolling on a vertical scroll wheel.
