Vehicle Selection Screen Stretching Columns

Vehicle Selection Screen Stretching Columns

Postby Hardwood » Wed Sep 20, 2017 10:31 am

Has there been a fix for the vehicle selection screen warping for no reason?

When we go to schedule an appointment, and go to select a vehicle, the screen showing the list of customers cars seems to warp on it's own.

The year column should never be allowed to stretch beyond 4 (or maybe 6) characters - it's only a 4 digit number, never more but grows to be big enough for 20 characters.

Same for any field with a known fixed size, such as VIN, License, etc.

I am repeatedly "fixing" the look, only to see it gradually go back only being able to see three columns.

Probably been answered before, but I'm asking again.

Thanks!

So I played around with this a little and found that if I resized the columns to where I like they stayed put when I re-opened, UNLESS I changed the overall size of the window using the bottom right corner. Then they all stretched out weird-like. Can you confirm a similar experience?

I cannot confirm that. We have 5 workstations and I don't think we ever resize the window. It just slowly goes haywire over time.

I was told a while back that I needed to size it the way I wanted on the server, using the default user, and that would make it stick. It didn't.

I'm wondering if the different size monitors and screen resolutions are affecting this somehow?

I envision a software writer being able to "lock" the column sizes for each field, so as to never allow more characters to show than can possibly be entered (year, VIN, license, etc..)

Thanks for looking into this.
