Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is software use/operation error. A Column repeat has been configured with Fill 100% option and the user is expecting to have the columns occupy always the fixed width.


The explanation for this behavior is as follows: 

It is the behavior of the browser when the Fill 100% option is chosen.

For example, in a table there are two columns occupying total width of 100px, when we choose Fill 100% option then each column will occupy 50% of the space available for it. So each column here will occupy 50px width.

Similarly, if the table is having four columns occupying the total width of 100px, then each column takes 25% of the entire space and hence each column width is 25px. This keeps changing with the number of columns in the table as it is indirectly proportional to the space of each column width.

This is how the Grid System in the PRPC has been designed. If the columns are static at runtime then it is always better to go for the Pixel Fit Content of Pixel Fixed Width. If the number of the column changes then it is based on the total width of the div space occupied in it.
