    How can I adjust column width

    Asked by larryback on May 07, 2015 at 07:56 AM

    In my grid report, URL below, why are some columns much wider than necessary to encompass their content? Examples are Avg dinner entree $, Early bird, and Seniors discount.  Is there any way to compress column width that will survive the dynamic refresh?

    Hi Larry,

    You can do it by adding a simple CSS code to your form. You can adjust column widths individually by this code;

    .form-matrix-column-headers.form-matrix-column_0 {
    width: 300px;
    .form-textbox {
    width: 90%;

    If you don't know how to add CSS please take a look at this article; How to inject CSS code to your form 

    Kindly Regards.

    I have a three column grid report and want to adjust the third column to be wider than the other two. I have tried every method including the above but none work and have now run out of ideas.
