Dashboard Text wrapping / Row Height


(Evan Purdy) #1

How can I make the rows in a dashboard tall enough to fit all the text in a field (part description)?


(Evan Purdy) #2

So I would guess that the table on a dashboard is an EpiUltraGrid, based off a Infragistics UltraGrid if I understand correctly… So if I could set DisplayLayout.Override.CellMultiLine = DefaultableBoolean.True and DisplayLayout.Bands(0).Override.RowSizing = RowSizing.AutoFree then I would probably get the result I want.

Is there any way to customize a dashboard?

Sure, compile it to an assembly (SmartClient), add a menu item for it, create a customization for it.

How though? When I click any other menu item, such as quote entry the customization window appears but when I click dashboard menu items it does not show that window.

I’m confused as to what you just said. Is it that you not know how to compile to an assembly? Or how to add it to the menu? Or add a customization?

I have a dashboard. I have deployed it with the “Deploy Smart Client Application” Checked
I have a menu item for this dashboard.
With developer mode turned on, clicking on the menu item does not present any of the customization options I would expect to see. If I customize the quote entry form or other menu items I can add controls, code etc. I can only change which fields show and what grouping is used for the Dashboard, not add controls such as buttons etc.

Did you create the menu item or was it autocreated? If so - did you select Dashboard Assembly (not runtime)

I don’t have menu security access - got my boss to change it and now it works. (After restarting Epicor) Thanks.

Now I just need to get the text to wrap.
