There really isn't any way to make a ScrollPane increase its own  
width, since that is up to the scroll pane's parent. However, you  
might try setting the horizonalScrollBarPolicy to FILL or  
FILL_TO_CAPACITY to see if that meets your needs. FILL means - "always  
make the view the same width as the scroll pane". FILL_TO_CAPACITY  
means "make the view the same width as the scroll pane until its  
preferred width exceeds the width of the scroll pane. The default is  
AUTO, which means "show a horizontal scroll bar if the view's  
preferred width exceeds the width of the scroll pane; otherwise, hide

By "automatic", do you mean "size to fit"? In other words, make the  
column width the max. width of all the cells in a particular column?

If so, we don't currently support that. We could conceivably do so by  
supporting a value of -1 for column width (like TablePane columns),  
but we didn't think there was a strong use case for that. TablePanes  
generally have a small number of rows, so calculating this width  
doesn't impose a performance penalty. However, TableViews are intended  
to display a large number of rows and it could be costly to determine  
this value.

On the other hand, if you know you are only going to have a small  
number of rows in your TableView, it might be a useful feature. Please  
feel free to submit a feature request for this (in JIRA).
