Filter pop-up in repeat grid are of constant width



When user creates a report definition (RD) and give as a source to the Repeat Grid and when filters are enabled on the Grid, when user clicks on filter popup should be expandable just like when we drag a model window popup to any size.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a RD and give as a source to the Repeat Grid with filtering enabled.
2. Enable the Filters on the Grid, when we click on filter popup should be expandable.

Root Cause

A backwards compatibility defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules that in Pega 7 all the filter popups are of constant width  irrespective of listview or repeat grid  and the content inside it, is wrapped so as to fit in the pop-up.


Though It is recommended to use the Pega 7's default behavior but  the required (previous) behavior can be achieved using the following local changes:

.gridTable td.gridCell.gridCellSelected{
white-space:nowrap !important;

.gridTable repeatReadWrite{

white-space:nowrap !important;

.gridTable td.gridCell{
white-space:nowrap !important;


      width: 100%;
    overflow: auto;
} div.gridDefault div#gridBody_right table.gridTable tr td.wrapText span
white-space: normal !important;
