Width

By default, the Kanban is adaptable to its parent container. It can adjust its width of columns based on parent container width. You can also assign width of [kanbancolumns] in percentage.

The following code example describes the above behavior.

<ej-kanban id="KanbanBoard" key-field="Status" dataSource="ViewBag.datasource" is-responsive="true">
   <e-kanbancolumns>
        <e-kanbancolumn header-text="Backlog" key=@(new List<string>(){"Open"}) width=@("10%")>
        </e-kanbancolumn>
        <e-kanbancolumn header-text="In Progress" key=@(new List<string>() {"InProgress"}) width=@("10%")></e-kanbancolumn>
        <e-kanbancolumn header-text="Done" key=@(new List<string>() {"Close"}) width=@("10%")></e-kanbancolumn>

NOTE

allow-scrolling should be false while defining width in percentage.

Min Width

Min Width is used to maintain minimum width for the Kanban. If the Kanban width is less than min-width then the scrollbar will be displayed to maintain minimum width.

The following code example describes the above behavior.
