Horizontal scroll bar for wide tables?


(Christoph) #1

How about a horizontal scroll bar for posts with wide tables? See for example this one:

Or is there any other way of getting that table diaplayed?


(Kane York) #2

We need to change the HTML generation to wrap the table in a horizontal-scrollable <div>. This is probably a good idea in general.


(Christoph) #3

Just so that I understand correctly: this is nothing I can do as an admin, right? This requires coding in core, no?


(Joffrey Jaffeux) #4

the thing is, a simple <div style="overflow-x:scroll">YOUR LARGE TABLE</div> would make it work, but the style will get removed when cooked, I think you would need a plugin to allow this on div (or allow a specific css class which would be better).

Basically it would mean having a helper which would have something like this:

export function setup(helper) {
  helper.whiteList(['div.horizontal-table']);
}

Yeah I support changing core to div wrap tables, then it will be trivial to correct this using CSS. As it stands I do not think there is a simple CSS workaround.

@awesomerobot is div wrapping required for tables to get overflow scroll or is there some black magic I am missing?


(Kris) #6

Yeah wrapping tables in a div and adding overflow: auto; to that div is the simplest way

Complete per:


(Stephen Chung) #12

I am pretty sure for horizontal scrollable tables you need overflow-x instead of overflow-y…


(Jeff Atwood) #13

Hmm yeah @sam did we mix up our X’s and Y’s here? :wink:

But magically it is working. For both overflow-x and overflow-y. I think overflow-x assigned to auto automatically when we set overflow-y: auto :thinking:

We should still fix the commit.
