A Maximum page width can now be set to ensure the page fits on one page in your browser

On all forms the page will expand to accommodate all of the fields and tables in that form. However, on some internet browsers the page expands to larger than the width of the page and you have to scroll to access data or additional buttons. You can set a Maximum Page Width in the Form's Advanced Properties. This sets the width of the form and prevents the page from growing over the width required; reducing the need to scroll.

You can now set a maximum width for each Event Form in the Advanced Properties for that Event Form

To access the Maximum Page Width setting, go to the Advanced Properties for the Event Form.

At the bottom of the Advanced Properties Section, you can set the Form's Entry Width

At the bottom of the Advanced Properties Section, you can set the Form's Entry Width

You set the "Form Entry Width" in Pixels. Most of the Event Forms on the system are between 500 and 1200 pixels wide.

N.B. If you do not want to set the width, you can enter "-1" or leave the field blank.

Set the width in Pixels to your required width. If you set it to -1 (as shown here) or leave it blank it will not reduce the page width

Set the page width to the minimum you need to fit in the field/section widths that exist in that form

The example here shows the Event Form being set to 800 pixels.

The Form was set to 800 pixels and displays within the browsers main window without having to scroll.

The Event Form will display in the internet browser and the users do not need to scroll to access any data.

If you reduce the browser window to below 800 pixels (using the minimise button), the scroll bar will appear to access the entire 800 pixels width

If the page width is set to 500 pixels and you do the same window reduction as in the step above, now when you reduce the page width (using the reduce browser window button), or if you are on a small screen size, you do not need to scroll

If the page width is set to 500 pixels and you do the same window reduction as in the step above, now when you reduce the page width (using the reduce browser window button), or if you are on a small screen size, you do not need to scroll

However, if you set a form to 100 pixels and you reduce your browser page to very small (smaller than the image in the step above) you will see that the fields still show, but they show outside the boundary of the 100 pixel page width.

However, if you set a form to 100 pixels and you reduce your browser page to very small (smaller than the image in the step above) you will see that the fields still show, but they show outside the boundary of the 100 pixel page width.

Most page widths will be between 600 and 800 pixels. The page width in the image here was set to only 100 pixels. This means that when the internet browser page size is reduced to about 100-200 pixels , the page width will be reduced (to 100 pixels). However, the questions in this event form take up more than 100 pixels so the questions run over the page width.

If the page width is set too small (as in the example here), the system will never cut off a question, so that you cannot answer it, it will just reduce the page width to the set width and questions will run over the page boundary (and the form will look ugly). Ensure you choose the correct page width.

When the form is set to 100 pixels and you view the Event Page in the Browser without reducing the window size (as in the step in the image above), it will appear within the browser page correctly.

When the Page width is set at 100 pixels and you view the Event Form in your Internet Browser without minimising the browser page, the form will display correctly and you will not need to scroll to access the entire form.

A standard 15 inch monitor has a pixel width of around 1025 pixels, so anything set below this will ensure the form fits in one page when you view it on your internet browser
