    Make Grid Report autofit on the page just like HTML Table Report

    Asked by markashton on July 14, 2013 at 10:48 AM

    Hi,

    Can you see this grid report does not fit the page: http://www.jotform.com/grid/31956430923052

    Can you see this html table does: http://www.jotform.com/table/31884686333060

    Can you advise me why the grid report doesn't fit  to the page ... ruins an excellent data reporting tool.

    Thanks Mark

    Hi Mark,

    You can actually drag the columns left/right border to change it's width but I see it would be more hassle free if the report autofit on the page. I have now escalated this to our dev team.

    We will let you know here once this is corrected. Thanks!

    Hi, we made some changes on the grid report. The table grid will now be automatically fit to the window once the data ha been loaded.

    Whatever the number of columns it will stretch the grid width to 100%.

    Please confirm if it works from your end.

    Have a good day,
    Kenneth

    Hi Ken,

    Totally chuffed you're doing this ...

    Created a new grid report ... http://www.jotform.com/grid/32004311787043

    However, I see no change? How does the above look in your browser?

    Has the change not gone through the system yet?

    Come straight back Ken ... I'll test everything

    Hi Mark, I looked at your provided grid in your 2nd to last response. It looks to me like there are only 2 questions in this form - http://www.jotform.com/grid/32005888856060. So that is why it's not displaying all the way across since there isn't enough data to stretch it that far over. 

    I did a test and found the same thing here on my test grid with a different form - http://www.jotform.com/grid/32114867693057.

    No kade ... it should stretch it ... that was what was going on when we were fixing it ... to make the grid autofit to window. It had been fixed as per Answered by kenneth on July 20, 2013 at 09:47 AM

    Read the thread ... I'm not in the mood to help Jotform through lack of attention to detail

    This grid here ... try to resize in browser: http://www.jotform.com/grid/32005060010024

    Doesn't do it. 

    This functionality was fixed ... now its broken ... so over the last 2 weeks I've gone -1 functions down.

    Decipher the following in to what I might be thinking: */7^%** !!

    Hi mark, our developers made some changes into this one. We apologize if we missed to inform you about it. Unfortunately all your grid reports will be reset to default on which autofit to window is not set. Because autofiting grid to window will not work so good if you have so many fields/questions.

    So for now, we introduce a new way to customize your grids. 
    you can set to "autofit" grid when generating reports
     

    This option is only available in "NEW" theme of myforms page at the moment.

    Thanks,
    Kenneth

    Right ... anything else I should know about?

    Not knowing that wasted at least half hour of my time ... checking and then reporting it ... totally unneccessary ...

    Why was it not addressed to people on this forum string?

    This is a little downside of our active development, we can not announce each update as there are too many of them. There are literally tens of commits on our version control system submitted daily. Sorry for the troubles caused by this recent update on the Grid reports.

    In that case I won't bother notifying you of bugs that don't affect me.

    If its too much trouble for you to notify me of a change that I specfically requested ... because your intimating you haven't the time or the resources then I'll be bollloxed if I'm going to waste my time on anything that isn't critical to my end.

    Jotform is not Sorry. Sorry is a word that is massively overused to absolve one of responsibility and to pacify a party with a reasonable case.

    If Jotform was sorry or really cared about using:

    1) my forms in its templates without asking ... or
    2) my filepicker and Amazon S3 accounts for testing at my expense ...

    Then it would have at least attended to the broken filepicker integration that it left me hanging with or at least advised me accordingly as to when it might be expected.

    You're right ... I'm not happy.
