Example Custom Insert dialog box on a record form. Choose Stored Procedure.
- The 'Parameters' list box isn't even wide enough to show all the columns at their default widths (one column completely hidden).
- It's only long enough to show 7 parameters. But there's lots of wasted space below it on the form. To add insult, it's not even as big as the list you get when you choose 'Table'.
- .... and we can't make it any bigger.

Codecharge isn't too bad in this respect, but forms like this just make hard work. Why not make this dialog sizeable ?

Oh dear, that's a bit sad.

I've just noticed that I already made this wish in 2006 -

And TonyReid asked the same thing a couple of months later:

If you're feeling adventurous, find the dialog under your install
directory, make a backup, and adjust the width yourself.

That's a good suggestion.

C:\Program Files\CodeChargeStudio4\Components\Dialogs\DataSource\CustomUpdate.html

line 386:

<script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">  
createDialogActiveX("<OBJECT ID=\"ParametersListProcedureLV\"  
 style=\"width:100%;height:140px;\" ccsProgId=\"CCS.IEListView\"></OBJECT>");</script>

the height can be increased to 350 px and still fit on the form - you get over twice the number of visible rows!

Changing the width is more complex than I plan to tackle just now, since width of containing elements needs to be increased too. And even then, I wonder whether the CCS dialog will auto-scale, or even show scroll bars.
