I have a dashboard for which I created two dropdowns in XML. Both dropdowns are populated using a populatingSearch.
I've noticed that both dropdowns show up on the dashboard with a width of 214px. The HTML is:
<div class="select2-container" style="width: 214px;">...</div>
This width is incredibly small for my search results. As such, I want to change the width of this select box to 500px. I've tried altering the application.css file, but unsurprisingly the element's style will always take precedence.
Does anyone know an easy way to style dropdowns populated by searches? Thanks!
Have you tried going to: yoursplunkurl:8000/info (Development services) and clicking EAI object refresh? If not, try that. Then go back to the Development services URL and click Static resource cache control.
If that doesn't work, let me know.
It still defaults to 214px, not the width I set in the application.css file. Should I bump the version on the Static resource cache control?
If you are using advanced xml and Sideview Util, you can set width of Pulldown module using following
<module name="Pulldown"> <param name="name">varPulldown</param> ..... <param name="width">500px</param>
Is there no way to do this without using Sideview Util? I feel like this shouldn't be a hard-to-find/implement feature.
Would be nice to be able to control the width of each individual select list. One select list may have entries such as 'P1', 'P2', 'P3' so it could be 60px wide. The next one may need to be 250px wide. And I would like to control the margin/padding between them, and be able to have specific option style colors. Any way? In straight css this is 45 seconds of work. This is part of making a web page look like a web page. Long after the 'joy'(?) of a drag-and-drop moment is gone, the UI needs to stand on its own in front of users with real experience and expectations.
The only solution is to convert the dashboard to html and just change the width style inside the div element.
If you want 500px just put inside the div
Hope i could help 🙂
