Hi @ritu kushwaha 

Can share oml?



It sounds like you are trying to limit the width of the entire table to the page, and allow scrolling to see the fields that do not fit inside the browser's current view, while not interrupting the overall page layout.

You're on the right path with the overflow setting, however you have set it too low. The max-width and overflow settings should be on the container that surrounds the table, not the header of the table itself.

Hello Ritu,

You need to enclose the table in container and set the wideth of container to fill and tables style classes of overflow and width to fill, use this container inside another container, now you will able to see the desired output,



Hey Ritu,

Please follow the below steps :

1)Enclose the table inside a container.Give the width of the container as "12 col".

2)Give the container css as "overflow-x:scroll;"

3)Make sure the parent of the enclosed container should also have "12 col" as width property.

It will work!!

Thanks & Regards,

@ritu kushwaha  You can fix this issue with css, if you share the oml from your personal environment , I can you fix and revert you with a solution.

Hi @ritu kushwaha,

using "overflow-x: scroll;"  to scroll the table to see columns which are not visible is a good idea to follow.

Enclose the table in a container and apply this css to the container then the scroll will be just below the table. Make sure only table is inside the container neither pagination nor any other elements to avoid the spacing.
