How to make a calculated control scrollable

Jump to solution

I have a calculated control on my Nintex form that displays the contents of a separate multiline text field. The problem is that the size of the control does not adapt to the size of the contents of the multiline text field. Is there a way to make the calculated control scrollable?

Hi Jonathon Sutton‌,

You can achieve this by placing the calculating column inside a panel control.

Steps:

1] Add a panel to the form , make sure the Resize at runtime is selected to No (Under Advanced)

2] Place the calculated column inside the above panel

3] For the calculate column , under Advanced settings , select the Resize at runtime as Yes.

If you just want the calculated value to expand go to the control settings and make sure "Resize at Runtime" is set to Yes. this will expand the control with it's contents.

Now, if you want the control to stay the same size but be able to scroll through the contents once they are bigger than the control perform the first step as above and ensure the control setting "Resize at Runtime" is set to Yes.

Then take drag a panel control onto the canvas, make it the size you want your calculated value to expand to and then go to settings and set "Resize at Runtime" to No. Then drag your calculated value into your panel and when the contents of your calculated value exceed the size of the panel, the control will become scrollable.
