Bug Description

Related to bug 1645861.

I would like to be able to set the default width for some display columns in the web client grid. Although different users are likely to resize columns just the way they like, I think there are certain places where we can make assumptions for the users. For example, a barcode column should be wide enough to display the entire barcode and columns that display a title should be larger, by default, than a column that displays an ID.

You can't just click and drag to resize the columns in the web client and instead need to use a few clicks. If we can use some reasonable default values for these widths, it will ultimately save time and frustration for the user.

Bug #1702929 will address this by allowing column configurations to be stored as org unit settings, allowing for org-scoped defaults.

However, it's also possible today to apply default column widths directly in the template by applying a value for the "flex" attribute. The default flex value is "2".

To make a column twice as wide as the default, for example:

<eg-grid-field flex="4" ....></eg-grid-column>
