How to ignore the width of an appearing scrollbar

Hello everybody,

I have a question to you. I'm working with Pega 7.1.7 and have the following setting:

The application has to run in a window of a fixed size.

The Harness I use has 3 containers

  • a  header part,
  • a middle part,
  • and a footer.

The content of header and footer are known and don't cause any trouble.

However, the middle part can vary quite a lot. In particular, there are situations in which the fixed size of the window does not suffice and a scrollbar appears. The requirements about the colors then show an unaesthetic behaviour of Pega. As soon as the scrollbar appears, pega recalculates the size of the content window (the scrollbar is seemingly not considered to be part of the window). In particular, you can see that the containers are being "resized" as soon as the scrollbar appears, which is distracting (actually, you see a grey shape (container) "hopping") .

Therefore my question: Is it possible to tell Pega to ignore the scrollbar width? The padding I defined is more than sufficient to comfortably accomodate the scrollbar, and hence I don't require Pega's auto-resize.

Best regards,
