Working with Columns in the Siebel Handheld Application Client
Data is displayed in lists and forms in your Siebel Handheld application. You can organize and work within it in a number of ways to better suit your needs.
There are several ways in which to organize columns in a list. You can:
- Sort data by up to three columns
- Resize columns
- Change the order in which the columns appear
- Show and hide columns
- Lock columns for horizontal scrolling
You can sort records in a list by tapping in the column header of the column in which you want to sort the records. If the green column sort indicator points up, the column is sorted in ascending order. If it points down, the column is sorted in descending order.
If you need to sort by more than one column, you can sort up to three columns at one time. For information about how to perform an advanced sort, see the online help for the Siebel Handheld application.
Resize columns by tapping and dragging the divider between the column headings until the column is the desired size.
You can also change the order of columns. For information about how to change the order of columns, see the online help for the Siebel Handheld application.
Show and hide columns using the Columns Displayed dialog box. In the Available columns list, select the items you want to show and tap the arrow to move the selected items to the Selected columns list. To hide columns, select the items and tap the arrow to move the selected items to the Available columns list.
Lock or unlock columns by tapping and holding the column header.
