  • Card View Alternative #115144


    My mobile app makes extensive use of Grid with many dropdown lists for field choices, and it works well. I have one category in my app that has many wide fields that do not display appropriately even in landscape mode.
    What I need is card view or a suitable alternative that can display the detail of an individual item while having the entire list of items available on the same screen.
    I have tried to use Card View with my Grid, but it appears that the Dropdown lists don’t lend themselves to Card View.


    Thank you.

    Hello wsundet,

    I would like to ask you to provide us with one simple example that demonstrates your case.
    After that, I will try to provide you a solution to this.
    Meanwhile, you could try to use a different theme that could handle this strange appearance that you mentioned.
    Also, I would like to suggest you try to use the cellsrenderer callback for a specific column that you want to have dropdown options.
    Please, take a look at this code example:
