E1: GRID: Enhancement Request For Working With Grid Functionality (Doc ID 2984257.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 31, 2023

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Enhancement request for:

1. Less clicks with save
2. Multiple select for move
3. Fast move forward

All examples are based on databrowser F4211, but could be on any application grid as well:

1. Less clicks with save grid

Start with doing some work on grid (column width, hide, change sequence) and automatically green save button is visible:

When click on it, all following steps

First action, Grid Format managers opens, click save icon again in this screen
Then fill in the name

Enter a name (example: test) and click ok

Now this screen is unclear whether format is already saved or not - should click save icon again, or should click on cross to leave grid format manager.
From a safety perspective click on save icon again.

Now see the ‘work in progress’ bar, so assume it is saved (however no changes visible)
Then click on the blue cross to leave the grid manager

Now the new grid is saved. This is possible in a 2 click action:
- Click save icon in grid
- Pop-up with name, after OK – ready

In case doing additional more difficult changes on grid, make a new button for grid manager.

2. Multi select for move
In many occasions, for example when you have extended your grid, new columns are auto created on the end of your grid. You have added them because of importance, so you want to move them all more to the front of your grid.Make it possible to select more columns, for example with “SHIFT+ MOUSE CLICK” to select or any other smart intuitive command(s).

3.Fast move forward
The current way of working is very laborious and intensive clicking (grid manager) or dragging (on grid it self). In combination with request 2 where off course these 5 new fields are all on position 100, 101, 102, 103 and 104 and need them to be visible somewhere on position 10.
Easier is multiple select in step 2 and then do a right mouse click with the option to sequence:
- Bring selection to front -> automatic is doing your (multiple) select to position 1 of the grid
- Bring selection to position …. -> when you pick this choice you need to enter a number, for example 10, then all selected fields will move to position 10 and later (sequence unchanged on your multiple select)
