For the Love of God Fix the Anchors on Grids

(Jose C Gomez) #1

Ever since Version 8 there is no easy to way (frankly there isn’t even a hard way) to set Anchors on Grids and have them auto resize with the form without spending 10 thousand hours fiddling with it.
They automatically expand past the border of the form (or any container)
They shuffle and shift around and hide and move again and are just down right hateful
And if by accident you touch any of the built in grids in particular in Order Entry you can kiss the rest of your day good bye trying to put it back.

I have scrapped and restarted entire giant customization because I’ve accidentally touched the main grid half way through and not noticed and the time investment in fixing the grid wasn’t worth it.

If I recall, most of these are panels within panels within panels. Not sure why, but each panel sometimes has code that dictates how it works instead of using the standard layouts and anchors. @josecgomez is rigjt!

Everytime I believe I am done with a Customization… I open up Custom XML Editor and Remove anything that I know shouldn’t be there… Even opening Options during Customization Mode will secretly save all your settings and apply to everyone etc…

Before you think your done… Always Inspect / Clean Custom XML… :slight_smile:

Even moving the Screen on a 32in Monitor will set it to open for everyone at pixel 2010 lol… I always make sure I get those cleanup, painful but yah.
