Columns details: Options

Show column

Sets whether the column should be displayed or not.


The name of the column; this is displayed above the column in the header.


The width of the column in pixels.

Size weight

The weight of this column; used in auto-resizing mode to allocate extra space to a column. The weight determines the percentage of the extra space that a column gets. If this is zero, the column has a fixed width. Higher weight means the column gets a greater share of the available space. For the mathematically inclined, here is a formula to calculate the actual width (note that for technical reasons this is not the exact formula used):1)

(width + (size weight) * ( (window width) - (sum of all widths) ) / (sum of all size weights) )


Set the alignment for the column's title and text; this does not affect the columns items if using tab characters in that column's display string.
