JAVA GUI window content does not fill out when window is enlarged (Win,Mac)

17 Views

I've been using the SAP JAVA GUI on a Windows XP workstation as well as a couple of MacBooks running OS X over the last year and a half or so, running versions from 7.10 r 7(maybe earlier) thru 7.10 r 10 (installed today.) The GUI has performed generally well on these platforms, but has one major irritation.

When I open certain pop-up windows, such as the SPAD [List of Output Requests > Status Description |http://img171.imageshack.us/i/screenshot20091006at241.png/|screenshot], it usually does not open a large enough window to display all the data - one must scroll horizontally and/or vertically to see the entire window content. The real aggravation is that if [one enlarges the window|http://img101.imageshack.us/i/screenshot20091006at242.png/|screenshot] so as to see more data, the resizing is ignored. The contents of the window are still displayed within the original window boundaries instead of filling out the expanded window. It is not possible to get the entire window contents displayed, it is still necessary to scroll around.

What am I missing here? How can I get window resizing to work correctly? (Or is there a way to make such windows at least open up at a larger initial size??)

I only found one other thread in this forum, , which seemed to be addressing the same problem, but the suggestion was to apply the latest patch to the GUI and get JAVA 1.6. One would think that since that post in 2008, any patches would have made it into the latest revisions. I'm already running Java 1.6.
