Hi formspider team,

I am finding two problems with grid panels.

  1. The grid header becomes invisible(as it scrolls up beyond the top edge of the panel) if you scroll down to the rows below bottom edge of the panel. Actually the grid header should be visible at all times.
  2. The height of the header increases to accommodate the text within. What is required is to keep the header height always constant and if the text inside is cropped the same should be displayed in a tooltip, if possible, as the mouse hovers over the header.

I can give you two examples. Toad data grid and ExtJS demo grids.

Kindly do something as we are waiting for a long time to get this rectified.

With regards,

Hi George,

Regarding 1: The Grid has its own scroll. This scroll, keeps the Grid header always visible and only moved the rows in it up and down.

A Panel may also have a scroll. In that case, it is the panel that is being moved up and down. So the contents at the top of the Panel might become invisible.

You should set up the layout in a way that you use the Grid's scroll to see additional rows. It seems to me that you are using the Panel's scroll for this purpose. So you probably have a Grid that doesn't fit into the layout cell it is being displayed in.

Regarding 2: We have a ticket for this issue. It will get resolved in the future versions.

Kind regards, Yalim
