Force Horizontal scroll bar on a Grid RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a way to show a horizontal scroll bar on a grid instead of it reflowing for smaller devices?

    Thanks,

  • Hi Dave,

    I looked at this last week, but couldn't make it stop reflow.  The table is jQuery Mobile reflow table widget.  In the documentation it says there is a way to make a custom breakpoint in CSS (width at which the reflow happens).  I'd assume this could be set small enough to prevent the reflow, but after a few min of poking around I couldn't make it work.  I'd give myself a D+ for effort so you may have better luck.

    That said, I'm not sure jQM would render a scroll bar for you.  Although I could be wrong.  Perhaps some fixed width containers in LS designer might help there(?)

  • Thanks Josh,

    At this point I'm a little overwhelmed with the amount of work it takes to do what I would consider simple things.

    So, I'm looking at third-party controls like componentone and syncfusion (when they have essential studio for js for lightswitch).

    Thanks,

    Dave
