Jqgrid is a fantastic plugin for jquery that allows us to display information in a Datagrid format. While it has tons of options, there is no simple options to make the width of the grid fluid. That is, the grid width does not resize when the browser resizes.

Here is a simple snippet of code to make this happen

$(window).bind('resize', function() {
 jQuery("#grid").setGridWidth($('#parentDiv').width()-30, true);
}).trigger('resize');
