Repeating Grid row expand is not working



User has a repeating grid which contains expandable rows. When user expands any row, the width of the first column increases.

This column width increases every time the row is expanded.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1) Configure a repeat grid with expandable rows.
2) At run time when user expands any row, the first column width increases.

Root Cause

When the Grid is in 100% width mode (Set in the Presentation tab), the table layout is set as auto and the width is given as 1% for the expand icon column.

This leads to an unexpected behavior as the browser tries to reset the width of the table columns.


Perform the following local-change steps:

1.Try the following CSS snippet in the UserWorkForm:

[datasource="EmpGrid.pyEmployeePL_pxExpandPaneSingleRow_1"] #bodyTbl_right tr.cellCont > td:first-child {
width: 28px !important;

2. Change the value of the datasource attribute by inspecting the Data Object Model (DOM).
