I'm currently using GWT-P which allows our app to remember a state in which you left a view. I believe it only builds the view from scratch the very first time its entered. After that it just redisplays it.

I have a column in the grid thats set to autoexpand: grid.getView().setAutoExpandColumn(name);

The very first time I enter the screen it looks great. If I transition to a new place, then go back to the page with the grid, the column is shrunk down to a minimum size and doesn't get autoexpanded.

I'm ok with having to manually retrigger this at each new visit to the page, but how do I trigger the event?

I apologize in advance if this is super easy to find somewhere.
