Row height and column width
An easy way to make a grid look less cramped and cluttered is to set your own row height and column width. Normally, you'll make all the rows the same height and all the columns the same width, but the interview scripting language is sufficiently flexible that you can set different row heights and column widths for each row and column.
Gridname[GridCategory].Qname.Categories[Category].Style.Cell.Height = "high"Gridname[GridCategory].Qname.Categories[Category].Style.Cell.Width = "wide"
The name of the grid.
The name of a category for which Qname is repeated (that is, one of the categories named at the start of the grid definition). If the setting applies to all categories, use [..].
The name of the repeated question.
The name of a response in Qname’s response list. Use [..] to refer to all responses.
high and wide
Measurements in pixels (px), points (pt), ems (em), inches (in), centimeters (cm), or millimeters (mm).
Grid with rows 1cm high and columns 1.5cm wide:
TeaLoop[..].Countries.Categories[..].Style.Cell.Height = "1cm"
TeaLoop[..].Countries.Categories[..].Style.Cell.Width = "1.5cm"

If you do not allow text wrapping in a heading row or column, the interview program will ignore any column width you have specified globally or for that column, and will make the column as wide as is necessary to display the full row or column text all on one line. With row texts, the row text column will then be as wide as the longest row text. For more information, see Wrapping text in cells.
