Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

Set container size to 100% with a maximum of 6" width

  • Set container size to 100% with a maximum of 6" width

    Is it possible to set the size of a list or container to be 100% with a limit of 6" wide.
    If the browser is set to full screen, 100% is too wide and the list is hard to read. If the browser is set to 6" wide,
    the list is easy to read. If the list is set to just 6" and the browser is 4" wide, the right portion of the list is hidden.

    If the list is set to 100% and the browser is just 4" wide, the list self-adjusts to fit the browser.

    Thanks

    Set the List to Fill Container... and then put a Container around the List and set it's width and height.

      Well, this is close, but if the browser is resized to less than 6" in width, the container doesn't resize to a smaller width. It stays at 6".

            But you're also using Alpha 2999... so... since there have been a ton of improvements in containers and lists since then... not sure what's going on.

              OK, I'll give it a try in the current version just to see. But I'm stuck with the earlier version for the live app.

                I think this will help... and Alpha version shouldn't matter. What you want to do is resize and redraw the List control if the browser window is less than a certain width. But, once the browser window reaches a certain width, stop resizing the List. You can use media queries for this.

                Wrap your List with a Container. Don't set a width on the Container and give the Container a class of listResize. Set your List to Fill Container.

                In the UX Property, Local CSS Definitions...

                Code:
                @media screen and (min-width: 10in) {
                    .listResize {
                        width: 10in;
                    }
                }
                @media screen and (max-width: 10in) {
                    .listResize {
                        width: 100%;
                    }
                }
                Here we're saying if the screen size is larger than 10in then set the width of the container to 10in. But... if the width of the screen if less than 10in then set the container to 100%.

                Now... this almost works... but the List gets a bit messed up... so we just need to redraw it. But, we don't really know when to redraw it... so... in the Javascript functions section add this...

                Code:
                window.onresize = function(event) {
                	var listObj = {dialog.object}.getControl('LISTWINES');
                	listObj.refresh();
                };
                Now, whenever the browser resizes, the List will be redrawn. This List will get smaller as the browser window gets smaller than 10in... and will grow to a max of 10in.

                  Dave,

                  I removed the entry for the container width, entered listResize into the Class for the container and set the width of the list to 100%.
                  It works perfectly.

                  Thank you so much.
