Error Messages

No error message, the 'Search Text' textbox exceeds the width of the filter over lay, appears on Repeating grids.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error User has modified the Default format-Dynamic layout style Label settings - Label position from top to left in their application skin
The GridFilterRangeFields section (Final rule) renders the filter section, the search text field is in the dynamic layout which uses the Default format. Hence the label and text box render in a single line and also the field has a fixed width of 196px is causing it to exceed the filter area.


Perform the following local-change:

 If the change must be applied across application, add the code snippet in UserWorkForm rule.
 Add for some areas, then wherever grid is used, in that section drop a non-auto generated section with the code snippet.

div[node_name="pzGridFilterRangeFields"] .content-inner{
display:inline !important;
div[node_name="pzGridFilterRangeFields"] .content-inner > label{
width:25% !important;
div[node_name="pzGridFilterRangeFields"] .content-inner > div input{
width:85% !important;
