Scroll bars mid screen - Cognos Impromptu 7.5
« on: 09 Aug 2019 09:40:55 am »
I wonder if someone could give me some pointers please as to what might be going on with my Impromptu report - instead of the report filling all the available space in the window when I maximise the Impromptu window on my screen, it just covers 3/4 of the horizontal/vertical space and shows horizontal and vertical scroll bars...

As it is a bit tricky to describe, I have attached a screenshot and would appreciate any clues  :)

Thank you!

Hi,

How is this report structured - I'm guessing this is the key to the issue here? It looks to me like you have an outer Form Frame (the entire screen) containing a List Frame (the part with scroll bars) and your list is contained within the List Frame? You should be able to resize the List Frame - just select it, go to the Format menu and choose Size, and choose the Snap to Parent option - this will make it the same size as the Form Frame.

Cheers!

MF.
Meep!

Thank you very much, took me a few attempts to select the list frame correctly, but once I had managed that, it was easy to fix it with the properties as per your advice!

Thanks again

Glad to hear it's fixed! I'm going to try out my clairvoyance cap and guess this is... <concentrating hard> ...something to do with ESS? :)

Oooooh, you’re not just a Cognos genius, but an amazing clairvoyant as well  ;D

I will definitely come back to this forum with any future queries I might have  ;)

Hi Lynn! Nice to see you! Hope all is well :)

My clairvoyance cap is humming again. I'll give it a quick try. It's telling me there is some common link between you both. It's a vague impression of fire? No, not fire, but perhaps what used to be fire. Embers? No, not embers. That's not it. Ash? Yes, I think that's it! Ash. Does that mean anything to you? :)

I think I've used up this year's allocation of clairvoyance. Normal muppet behaviour from now on :)

 :o now that's almost spooky - which clairvoyance school did you go to, impressive performance  ;)

I'll have to take some lessons there, I can only think of the most tenuous links you could possibly have to the parties mentioned above that made you come up with your mystic statements   :-[ :P
