Increasing Reference Column Width In Sage CRM

By | June 22, 2020

Recently in the community forum there was an requirement, where user wanted to show reference no of Case, Order or Quote in a single line instead of it being displayed in two separate lines.  This can be easily achieve by writing simple jquery code. In this blog we will see how to achieve the same.

New Stuff: Display Selection field value as an Icon using Client Side API

Currently if you will notice in below screenshot, Reference No of Order is displayed in two separate lines.

Now in order to show reference of order in single line, we will have to increase the width of Reference field. To do this, we need to follow below steps:

  1. Login to Sage CRM as Admin user.
  2. Navigate to below path.
    Administration | Customization | Orders
  3. Navigate to List tab and click on the Order List Box List.
  4. Copy and Paste below code into the Custom Content section of Screen.
	$(".CONTENTGRID [colName='orde_reference']").css('width', '80px');

Click on Save Button. Refer below screenshot:

Now, navigate to Order List against an Opportunity record and you will see that width of Reference field has increased and it can be seen in same line. Refer below screenshot:

Similarly if we want to increase width of any other column in any of the list or grid, we can use above code and just need to replace ‘orde_reference‘ field with the name of column whose width needs to be increased.
