Resize of a CrossTab

Hello Experts,

I am using Design Studio 1.5, and my dashboard requires detail drill down function, I have entire screen available for the detail drill down.

I am using the crosstab component for the drill down.

What I found, the entire cross tab space is divided 50-50 between the dimensions and measures.

If I have 10 dimensions and 2 measures, 50% horizontal space is allocated for the 10 measures and remaining 50% space is for the 2 measure.

Even though I have more space on the screen, scroll bar appears for the dimensions. I tried to adjust the individual column width, but it does not help.

The adjustment of the column width is limited to the 50% space of the dimension area only.

As an alternative, I give a bigger length to the crosstab width, say 2000 and keep Alwaysfill = False.

So, 50% of 2000 i.e, 1000 is allocated for my dimension set and 1000 for the 2 measure , and as Alwaysfill = False, measure are only taking the minimum space. This is how I manage to resize it.

But, I can see some limitation with this approach,

1. Whenever resolution changes the crosstab is going beyond the screen.

2. when I an doing vertical scroll, page is distorted, entire contents moving to left little bit.

3. In Ipad-view the buttons on the page are not working.

Is there any better way I can re-size my cross tab, I want to avoid scrollbar as much as possible.

    Hi Supriya,

    Could you maybe post an image with your explanation so we can see visually what you are talking about? Sorry to bother you like that. Worst case scenario though, even if I don't help you, the extra insight with the images may help the community help you more efficiently.

    From my experience with the tool, I found that when dealing with the crosstab component, CSS manipulation has usually got me to my dashboard end-state. In regards to resolution changes, I've started using basic @media queries to great effect in the CSS file to resize certain components when necessary. The Design Studio SCN has a lot of posts, blogs and comments on responsive design to search through, you may just have to manipulate the idea in the direction of your dashboard solution.
