input field (screen painter)

hello everyone

pls tell me the suggestion to enter as many characters in small input/ output field.

eg: in the database table the field length is 40 char (data element).

but in screen display for that field only for 10 char.

i want to enter 40 char in that field in screen but after 10 char ,the first char should move to the extreme left.

so what is option for moving the chars to the extreme left in screen painter.

thanks.

    There is a "scroll" option on the field attributes that should do the trick... you can then set the display length and input length separately.

    Hi,

    Please find the required steps below.....

    (1) Take the screen painter of the required field

    (2) Double click on the screen painter field

    (3) in the pop up you can see

    "defined length"

    "visible length"

    defined length = total length of the field

    visible length = how much you can see on the screen

    set visible length = defined length

    eg: if data element is 40char

    put visible length = 40

    so you can set the visible length = 10/20..etc as per your requirement

    this will enlarge your screen to it's maximum length..this you can do by manually extending the screen boundaries in screen painter also

    (4) to do as you have requirement, we need to set the scrollable property of the screen field in the pop up ..after which a symbol "}" will appear at the right end...if you have just 10 as visible length and 40 is the total length and you have set the field to scrollable then as you enter the cursor will move right to accomodate the letters...

    but if you need to see it you must keep the cursor and scroll right and left with the moust/keyboard to see the entire text

    Regards
