Resizing interactive report column dropdown list

Sometimes you might have problem that column value is long and do not show completely when you open IR column dropdown to filter with values. For workaround you can add feature that end user can change dropdown width using jQuery resizable.

Add to page JavaScripts:


Now when you click interactive report header and move mouse to dropdown edge, you can drag it wider.

If you have problems you can not resize dropdown, check your page template have doctype. See OTN forum thread: Interactive Reports - Width of column heading filter dialogue.

    Hi Alexander26k,

    I might write blog post about column resizing. I'm currently quite busy so it might take while when I find time to do this.

    Hi Alexander26k,

    You mean resize interactive report columns? Yes, it should be possible if you write JavaScript code for that.

    Hello. Please tell me whether it is possible to make so that the user can resize columns themselves?
