Unable to increase the width of columns for Report



Unable to increase the width of the columns in the report. Values in few columns are compressed and the complete value inside the column cannot be seen. The issue persisted even after increasing the width from the report definition.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a report definition with 10-15 columns, where few columns have data exceeding the table cell's width.
2. Run the report. Observe the data truncating when window is resized or shrunk during runtime.

Root Cause

A software use or operation error:
The table shrinks as the window shrinks ignoring contents of the table. This works as intended to avoid having a horizontal scroll bar.


Perform the following local-change:
Add the CSS given below in workform_pyreportingskin.css to adjust the table width according to the content when the window is resized. If it exceeds the screen width, the scroll appears.

.summaryReport > .gridDefault > .default > #report_body > table {
table-layout:auto !important;

Include the changes given below in the CSS to accommodate header text in the same line if there is space.

#reportSearchGrid div div#report_body table tbody tr th{
 white-space:nowrap;//removed wordwrap
