Data appears with a scroll bar in a text field.

Hi Experts,

I have developed an interactive form application which populates data from the BAPI. The application has got several fields which may flow to even N number of pages.

My issue is when the data exceeds the text field should also expand, but it's not the case instead when the data is more a scroll bar appears at the right end and I have to scroll the data.

I have kept the fields in a subForm and that subForm is further wrapped in an another subForm where "Repeat SubForm for Each Data Item" option is checked for both the subforms as well as "Allow page breaks" is also checked as both are in Flow Layout.

Also I have checked the options "Expand to fit" and "Allow multiple lines" for the respective fields.

But still the scroll bar appears. When the data is in one line then the scroll bar doesnu2019t appears as the field height is sufficient enough to hold the data.

I am using NWDS 7.0.13

Designer Version 6.0

And Reader 8.0

Please suggest me where the actual problem is?

Helpful answers will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Warm regards,

    Hi Gaurav,

    Functionality is working as it is required. Need to check if there's a workaround for this.

    how do you bring up the scroll bar?

    Is a field text your field?
