Horizontal Scrollbar visibility & Filtering - DataGrid

Sep 8, 2009 at 9:28 PM

I've implemented a filtering mechanism where the user can pull down a menu from a column header and type in some text to filter the items. The problem I'm having is if they are specifying a filter value on a column that is beyond the initial view, ie: where they had to scroll to see the column, and they choose a value that produces no results, the scrollbars disappear and the grid scrolls itself back to the beginning. These 2 features combined make it impossible for the user to then choose that column and remove or choose a valid value because they can't scroll to see the column anymore. Is there a workaround or is this planned to be fixed?

I'm facing the same issue, did you find a solution for this problem?

 Not really, I just added a toolbar button that disables all of my filters if the users get into that situation, totally a sub-optimal solution, but wasn't really any other option that I found.
