Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Include a repeating grid with more columns in CPM Composites Container.
  2. Login to system and launch CPM Interaction portal.
  3. Navigate to CPM composites container and observe that the repeat grid content is not displyed and there is no scroll.

Root Cause

CPM configuration for 'CPMPerformIncludes' uses a style 'inline grid double 15 85' which is causing the problem.
In that style the width of the two sections is set to 20% and 80%. So the grid is not calculating the width and only 80% of the grid is displayed with the scroll. Other 20% is not displayed in any way. But according to CPM design to display Interaction driver and the composite screen the style is mandatory.

They should refactor the grids not to include so many columns.
If the scroll is needed, set the attribute overflow-x to scroll.


  1. Save as 'Dashboard Right Container' to a new container format in skin.
  2. In Outline add an additional style attribute ‘overflow-x:scroll !important’.
  3. Apply it on the dynamic layout in 'CPMPerformIncludes'.
