    Hi Jari,

    Im trying to use this feature for my report. Im running 4.2.4 with Theme 26.

    Ive amended my template, and can get the report to scroll with a vertical scroll-bar etc.

    However, I cannot freeze the column headers. They scroll with the report.

    The issue is the difference between the template that you are using, and the ones for theme 26..

    For example. your report template is as follows:

    <table class="uReportContainer" summary="" #REPORT_ATTRIBUTES# id="report_#REGION_STATIC_ID#">#TOP_PAGINATION#

    <tr><td><div id="#REGION_STATIC_ID#_top">

    <table summary="" class="report-standard"></table>


    <tr><td><div id="#REGION_STATIC_ID#_bottom">

    <table summary="" class="report-standard">

    and the template for theme 26 is as follows:

    <table class="uReportContainer" #REPORT_ATTRIBUTES# id="report_#REGION_STATIC_ID#" summary="">

    <tr><td><div id="#REGION_STATIC_ID#_top">

    <tbody class="uReportBody">

    <tr><td><div id="#REGION_STATIC_ID#_bottom">

    <table summary="#REGION_TITLE#" class="uReport uReportStandard">

    Ive tried moving the tags for #REGION_STATIC_ID#_top around, and tried using different classes, but cannot get the header to stay fixed.

    Could you please offer any advice on how to fix the headers with this theme / template?

    Kind Regards

    Hi Steven,

    Create report template where is same HTML structure as in sample application. But keep your theme css classes.
    Copy JavaScript from sample application to your page.

    I guess, this do not work correctly when you add rows to tabular form. Never tested with tabular form.

    Does this work with tabular forms?

    I download the application and uploaded it into my workspace. Created a new template based off of the Horz/Vert Scroll template. And also made the Set Scroll DA but it doesn't seem to work correctly.

    Any Suggestions?

    Application: xxx

    Looked at it but current customer has issues with it being a Pay to use plugin from a Non-US country..

    Do you have any thoughts on how it might be done?
