I'm thinking to be able to find a control that has
ListViewWebPartJSGrid in its id. It is possible that there would be more than one on the page, but that would work out.
Okay, I figured out how to fetch the control id (you can see the color change):
var $trackingGridID = $("[id$=_ListViewWebPartJSGrid_leftpane_mainTable]").attr("id"); $('#' + trackingGridID).css("background-color", "blue"); //this will fetch: ctl00_ctl21_g_c3e5fead_d466_4448_9648_dcb92778921d_ListViewWebPartJSGrid_leftpane_mainTable
Now that I have the ID, it is a matter of figuring out how to modify the column widths...
But I want to do something like this:
function SetColumnWidths(column1, column2, column3)...
