Viewing Data Element Names when creating Indicators

Version:2.22
Build revision:22077

​We noticed we can no longer resize the Edit numerator/denominator screen when creating indicator formulas. Note in the example how data element names are cut off. We’ve had to resort to changing the screen resolution in order to see the entirety of a data element’s name in some cases. This was not an issue when using previous versions (we could simply expand this pop up to see more of the data element names.)

Does anyone have any tips on how we can view more detail without changing our screen resolutions?

Thanks.

Laura,

I have not checked 2.22 but normally if you hold hour cursor over anh of those elements you see the full name.

I do agree though being able to see more woukd be helpful.

Hi Laura and Elamarie,

Also zooming in would allow you see more of the data elements

See below

Hey All,

I’ve added a fix that adds a horizontal scrollbar so you can see the full names if they are too long.

I realise the whole window might not be ideal, esp on smaller screens. (I’m exploring some improvements, but am open to suggestions ;))

For now this will have to do.

Thank you Mark.

Quick question though:

What versions of DHIS2 will be affected by this fix?

I also think that the horizontal scroll bar and the ability to resize the window would help a great deal.

Thank you.

Warm Regards,

Hey Ifeanyi,

It will only affect 2.22 like was mentioned in the first e-mail.

I haven’t checked 2.23 and up (but will do so later, i believe we have fixed it there before, but will verify)
