Table adds infinitive scroll in IE11 browser due to Flexbox



On launching  the User portal from Pega Dev Studio in the Internet Explorer 11, each of the table columns is stretched out and a horizontal scrollbar displays at the bottom and scrolls infinitely. The table displays correctly in the Chrome browser.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Launch the application on the Internet Explorer 11 browser.
  2. Log in to Pega Dev Studio.
  3. Launch the Web Interface > <End User> portal.

Root Cause

The Internet Explorer does not completely support Flex containers which caused the horizontal scrollbar to display at the bottom of the screen.


Perform either of the following local-changes:
  • In the Presentation tab of the dynamic layout properties, switch the Layout mode to 'Use static legacy layout, markup and CSS' and select Pega 7.0.
  • Save the top level screen layout as a container. This makes the background color, transparent.
    For a white background, use the Developer tool to identify the Div class and include the below code to the UserWorkForm:

      .harnessBodyNoHead {
        background-color: white;
