Resize vs. Sorting for Small Columns

Feb 15, 2012 at 12:45 PM

I am displaying a column with an icon; the rows can be sorted by this column.
Since the width of the column is rather small, there is only a small (if at all) region in the middle of the column that allows for sorting, most of the time the resize-cursor is visible.

I wanted to modify the code, such that the size of the resize-area depends on the total size of the column (_hotSpotWidth in HeaderColumnSection). Unfortunately, it seems that the resize-area always corresponds to the column left to it, not to the column currently hovered, so I suppose a fix would be rather intrusive.

Is there a simple workaround to have smaller resize-areas for small columns?
