Increasing the width of dialog boxes

Question & Answer


Can dialog box sizes be increased?


Within this example, we will increase the 'View Attachments' dialog box.

Go to Application Designer – Select Action – Export System XML – click on the 'blue' arrow for the LIBRARY reference. Save the LIBRARY.XML, backup the LIBRARY.XML – open the LIBRARY.XML within a text editor. Find the following line:

<dialog id="viewattachments" label="View Attachments" savemode="ONLOAD">

Add the following (in pixels and the reference to 800 can be changed to a different value):

<dialog id="viewattachments" label="View Attachments" savemode="ONLOAD" width="800">

Save the modified LIBRARY.XML – import the modified LIBRARY.XML within Application Designer. Sign out – Sign back into Maximo – Access an Application with DOCLINKS and click on Attachments hyperlink to view changes:
