I was recently helping a new starter assemble an app the included a long check box list in its interface, and stumbled upon a possible feature to be added to your interface tools. Here’s the situation in a nutshell:
The analyst wanted to allow the end user to select a from a list of stores, so he used a List Box that populated from our store list in Oracle
We have thousands of stores, so when rendered, the interface would be extremely long and cumbersome for the user
I then suggested he use a Tree instead of a List Box for this part of the interface, as a Tree allows the designer to limit the Tree Window Height and display only XX lines to the user at a time
So, here’s my suggestion: Can a “Window Height” option be added to the List Box tool?
Given that Tree already has this functionality, I think it would make sense to include such a feature for List Box as well. As of v11.3, this feature does not appear to be included.
