Drop down position issue with MultiBox on AJAX

Hello,

I've noticed pretty weird issue with dropdown option on Multibox object.

I have more than 40 items in this MultiBox and by default the visible portion is ~30% of the whole list.

If I use a dropdown option for one of the items on the top of the list, everything looks right and the item expands at the right position, right next to the item I've selected:

Please note the scroll bar position (#1)

If I pick the item from the middle of the list (after scrolling the list down) the selected item expands much lower than the selected item:

Please note the scroll bar position (#2 and #3)

It looks like this new vertical position is relevant to item's position in the fully expanded list (without vertical scrolling)

Picking the item from the very bottom of the list opens the drop down much lower the item's position:

Please note the scroll bar position (#4)

It's clearly a bug in AJAX client implememtation, but I am just wondering if it's possible to control this dropdown's position (make it fixed at least) somehow.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Best regards,

Vladimir

I have the same problem with a table box. Then the dropdown list appears far to the right.

I would also appreciate any solution.

Best regards

Hi,

The only way I can think of to get round it would be to use a container and place multiple multiboxes in it (if there are logical groups) so as to avoid the scroll bar.

Hello,

While developing your report keep the webview mode ON.

and then try to adjust your UI.

FYI, I recently ran into this same issue while running version 11 SR4.  We upgraded one of our boxes to SR5 and the issue was fixed.

Hi Vladimir,

Barry Harmsen's just done a great blog post you might be interested in, in it he works around using a pivot table in a clever way to mimic the multibox functionality. To google it search for "qlikfix building nicer multibox"

William,

Good to know, thank you for update.

We have resolved the issue by changing UI, but I will check if SR5 resolved the issue.
