Adjusting list column width automatically based on data


I have added a new tab in Account screen which shows some data in an Advanced List Pane. I have 15 columns in the table and the advance list pane doesn't expand based on number of columns thus doesn't show up the column names properly. Also the column data is truncated and shown, which doesn't look good and its difficult for end user to read it. I tried setting up the Wrap Header and Wrap Content properties of the columns to true but that doesn't seem to be working. Is there any way to expand the column width based on data?

Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Meghna,

    One could control how the List column width handling should be done in Company level. Login as key user in HTML5, go to Company Settings in the Adapt menu on the top right corner. Here you should see a check box “Enable List Column Minimum Width Handling”. Please check this and Save and close the company settings. Logoff from the Application and login again. Check the Lists in the Application, it would ensure there is a minimum width given to the list columns and in case of more columns which can’t be fit in to the available space then there will be a Horizontal scroll bar. Hope this helps.

    Note: We will rename the check box to “Enable Horizontal Scrollbar” for better and easy understanding in 1511.
