Procedure documentation Scrolling in Lists  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

Use

The list displayed in your application is often too large for all its data to be displayed on the screen. To view hidden columns or rows, you have to scroll in the list. The following functions are available for this purpose:

      Paginators

If a restricted area is reserved for the list in the application, and this area is too small to display the entire list, paginators are displayed in the footer. Using the arrow buttons, you can scroll by row or by column in the required direction. Alternatively, you can scroll directly to the required point by entering a specific row or column number for the list.

      Scroll bars

You can use these as long as the list is not restricted to a specific area.

Showing Paginators

You can specify the size of the area in which the list is displayed by specifying the height and width of the list (see Setting the Number of Columns and Rows). The horizontal and vertical paginators are then displayed. If the number of columns and rows that you specify is less than the actual number of rows or columns, the pushbuttons and input fields for the paginators are active; otherwise they are inactive.

Fixed Columns

A list can contain fixed columns. This means that these columns are located to the right or left of the list, depending on the settings. If you scroll horizontally in the list, only those columns that are not fixed move in that direction. Fixed columns do not move.

Procedure

Scrolling with the Scroll Bar

Using the scroll bars for your browser window, you can display the hidden areas of the application window.

If the size of the list is not restricted to a specific number of columns or rows (all columns and rows are displayed, but they cannot be displayed on the screen simultaneously), you can use the scroll bars in the usual way. You adjust the application window, and therefore the list, by moving it horizontally or vertically into the required position.

Scrolling with the Pushbuttons for the Paginators

If the paginators in the footer of the list are displayed, you can scroll in the list in the following ways:

Scrolling with the Input Fields for the Paginators

The input field for the vertical paginators displays which row is currently displayed as the top row in the list.

Note

This information does not depend on which row is currently selected.

 

The input field for the horizontal paginator displays which column is currently displayed to the very left. You can specify a row or a column that is to be displayed as the first row or column.

...

       1.      In the input field for the relevant paginator, enter the required number.

       2.      Press Enter.

The list is moved so that the required row or column is displayed as the first row or column. If insufficient rows or columns are available to display a whole page after the specified one, the last possible page is displayed. The entry in the input field for the paginators is then adjusted accordingly.
