Progressive Pagination and Horizontal Scrolling Issue
Hi, I have to show around 20 columns in a table layout. When I am using normal pagination like Page 1,2,3.. I am able to see a horizontal scroll bar to view all the columns by scrolling through the bottom (horizontal) scroll bar but when I switch the pagination to Progressive, the horizontal scroll bar is missing and I am not able to view all the columns.
This is expected for progressive since progressive does not load the records in multiple pages. It loads it as you scroll vertically.
Also, it is not a good idea to show 20 columns in a grid. May not be good user experience for end users. You may want to mark some columns as primary and others secondary. That way, you do not have to worry about end users scrolling horizontally back and forth to view data.
Thanks mahab_GCS for your response. Yeah, I get to know that when I raised a support request with Pega and received the same justification by them as well.
On the other note, showing 20+ columns is part of my use case since application primarily deals with data which needs to be manipulated very frequently and case workers want to see all the related data on a single snapshot.
So as I workaround I am going with other paginations like Page 1 of x or 1,2,3... which is working for me and I am able to get a horizontal scroll bar.
