We need to provide the option to set width for column (static column width). 

The reason why user asking is because at the moment in our grids we use the 'Fit to content' setting but it only applies to text columns. A numeric column with a small number in it has a very wide column width which sometimes results in text columns being truncated. The solutions that would work for them would be for the numeric/measure columns to resize according to the 'Fit to content' setting or for the column size to be fixed by a percentage.
