How to enable permanent horizontal scrollbar (like in SAPUI5 explored example)


Hello Experts,

I am pretty new in SAPUI5 developing and at the moment I am facing a problem with horizontal scrollbar behavior.

At the moment I implemented a Grid Layout followed by a Scroll Container and a Table with 17 columns. As the table is too wide for low resolution displays I need a horizontal scrollbar to make all content accessible for the users.

By implementing the Scroll Container a horizontal scrollbar appears at the very end of the screen. However the user has to scroll all the way down in order to scroll horizontally.

I am looking for a solution, where the horizontal scrollbar is displayed permanently if the display resolution is not high enough. A good example for my desired behavior is the table sample (grid table) shown at SAPUI5 Explored.

To get a better understanding of my current implementation you will find code extraction attached.


Any hints how I could solve this issue smoothely?
