Page tree

Listing screens display a grid of data related to the current window. Every list has a default view, but you can customize it to display the columns you want to see, in the order you want to see them.

Useful Information

If the program administrator requires a user name to enter the program, the customized view is saved for each user.


To view the listing screen, click Listing Screen in the navigation pane. To change settings, click Customize View. See the Additional Fields Information below for more on these settings. To return to the default settings, click Default Values.

    

Additional Field Information

Grid Properties

  • Number of lines per row — Increase this number to enlarge the height of each row in the grid. As you increase the lines in each row, you decrease the number of rows you can see in the grid. The default value is 1.00.
  • Font size of the grid — For larger font, increase the number. Decrease the number for smaller font. Increasing the size reduces the number of rows you see at one time. The default value is 8 pt.
  • Lock the first column — By default, this option is selected, and the column is locked. This keeps the column in sight when you scroll to the right of a list. To unlock the column, clear this option.

Fields
You can drag and drop fields or use the arrow buttons to move selected fields between the two lists.

  • Fields available to view — These fields are available to view in the listing grid. Click Find to locate a specific field. To add a field to the listing screen, click a field name, then click the right arrow to move the column to the Fields you want to view list.
  • Fields you want to view — These fields display in the View Listing window. Click a field to view the width and heading name settings. Column headings display in the listing grid in the same order that they display in this list. To reorder the list, click the field name and drag and drop it to your preferred location in the list, or use the up and down arrows.
  • Width — Displays the width of the selected item in the Fields you want to view list. In the listing screen, an ellipsis (...) displays at the end of an entry to signify you are seeing incomplete information.
  • Heading — Displays the column heading name. A column can never be sized smaller than its heading name. The smaller the columns, the more information you can see in the listing screen at one time.
