Navigationblock: layout when using "allign entries next to one another"


When using the "allign entries next to one another" option in a navigationblock to create 3 collumns of chars. next to eachother on a large navblock the following happens: the filter icon is always placed on a new line regardless of the fact that there is plenty space within the object to put it next to the drilldown/accross icons..

Is there a way to force the icons next to eachother on one line per characteristic ?

With kind regards and thanks in advance, Patrick Rieken.

    Try to change the parameter "Maximum filter value length (FILTER_VALUE_LENGTH)".

      Hi Patrick,

      the system works "as designed". There are no plans to change the behaviour in a support pack.

      Just a shour explanation: FILTER_VALUE_LENGTH will cut off the filter values after the defined length. Nevertheless, the navigation block is rendered in 2 lines (this is the designed system behaviour), when HORIZONTAL_ALIGNMENT is set. You can't change this behaviour by simple parametrisation. For custom solutions, please see my posting before.

      The width of a column depends on the space, the whole column will need (this is typicall HTML behaviour); probably the first row will need more space.

      Changes in the behaviour this late in a system release won't be done, as many customers rely on this behaviour. Also a new parameter is not a good idea, as this also would mean risks during implementation.

      In my personal opinion, I don't think you will have much luck with an OSS message in this area, as the system behaviour is not an error.
