View Full Version : [CLOSED] Layout issue with Dataview

Oct 25, 2019, 11:54 AM

I want to center my dataview inside a panel, but if I use pack, I need the layout to be HBox or VBox.

Each one presents their own challenge:

HBox makes my dataview no longer responsive, and instead adds a scroll wheel and each object inside it goes in a horizontal fashion
VBox means that all items within the DataView are now listed vertically and are no longer responsive.

All I want to do is make my dataview go to the center of the panel :)

Please let me know

Hello @cslocus!

Can you draw a sample of the dataview the way you need it? Then we can experiment from that point and give you a couple solutions you can follow to keep items at its center.

One thing I think is monitoring the resize event to adequate the contents without allowing the scrollbar to show up, and keep them in center; this would more or less be equivalent to making a "manual responsiveness handling" instead of leaving all job to the native support. But I can't suggest anything specific without knowing exactly what we're talking about, how you are drawing the layout, and how would the arrangement would be satisfactory for your needs.

Looking forward to your follow up!

Hey (:

Sorry for the late reply!

I want it so that the dataview is always centered on screen.

That way, even when the items need to go onto a new line, the screen will always have the DV in the center.

For example:


Should be centered, rather than having the space on the right.

Please let me know if you need any additional info (:

Hello @cslocus!

Sorry for lacking clarity in my last message. With "draw a sample" I didn't mean a screenshot, but a sample test case code of the page. Just so I can see how exactly your dataview is built within its container; and then I can give you a solution that actually works for you. Maybe, you basing your dataview page in an exemple in our MVC Examples Explorer (https://mvc5.ext.net/#/DataView_Basic/Overview/)? I could use that as the test case if any of those DataView samples fits your scenario, would just need you to point one that's okay.

How exactly do you pull the sample test case code, Fabricio?
