Sage CRM has always been flexible enough to modify the look and feel of screens, lists, or grids. With the help of Standard CRM methods in combination with Client-side API, implementers can easily make such modifications to achieve business requirements. You can refer to our below post wherein we have explained part 1 of this topic.
In our earlier post, we explained how to wrap the text as well as resize the column’s width to fit with other columns in the list or grid. In this article, we will explain how to define the size of a respective column to avoid the column text from getting wrapped and continuing from next line.
As you can see in below screenshot, the standard opportunity list has a column which displays Opportunity description. However, if the user tends to add a long description the data is wrapped to a new line.
Based on one of our client’s request, we were asked to customize the list to display the text in one line rather than letting it wrapped. To achieve this, we thought of using Client Side API as explained further –
- Go To, Administration–>Customization–> Opportunity and click on Lists Tab. From the list of options, open the list you want to make the changes for example Opportunity List and click on hyperlink.
- In Opportunity List screen, Add below code in Custom Content of the screen and save the changes.
Once the changes are saved, you can see that the list or grids column’s width is increased as per the width set to column. Below is the screenshot of the same –
In this way you can control any column’s width in List or Grid as per your convenience in Sage CRM Client Side API.
