In Chrome browser, t
he filter icon appears below the column header.

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Setup a repeat grid with filtering enabled.
2. Also make sure 'Freeze Grid Header' is checked on the Presentation tab.
3. At runtime, notice the alignment of the column header with the filter icon.

Root Cause

In Internet Explorer, the anchor element for filter icon needs have height set to render properly.

In Chrome browser, the oflowDiv gets an additional height which causes the issue. It does not get the height in other browsers.

To fix this issue in Chrome browser, include the following CSS snippet in UserWorkForm / CSS file referenced in the harness rule:

.chrome th[role='columnheader'] > div.oflowDiv {
height: auto!important;
