Customizing form layout in CQWeb

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How can you customize form layout in the IBM® Rational® ClearQuest® Web client (CQWeb)?

Cause

If you would like to change the form size in CQWeb, you need to edit the files mainframe.xsl or resultsetframe.xsl.

For example, to move left frame smaller and upper frame smaller.

Answer

To change form layout, change the following CQWeb setting files:

  1. Left frame

    Edit the following file to change the size of the left frame:

    C:\Program Files\Rational\Common\rwp\EmbeddedExpress\profiles\profile1\installedApps
    \DefaultNode\RationalClearQuestWeb.ear\CQWebModule.war\view\browser\mainframe\mainframe.xsl

    For example:
    Before: <frameset cols="230, *" frameborder="1" framespacing="2" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" border="2">

    After:
    <frameset cols="130, *" frameborder="1" framespacing="2" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" border="2">
  2. Right frame

    Edit the following file to change the size of the right frame:

    C:\Program Files\Rational\Common\rwp\EmbeddedExpress\profiles\profile1\installedApps
    \DefaultNode\RationalClearQuestWeb.ear\CQWebModule.war\view\browser\resultsetframe\resultsetframe.xsl

    For example:
    Before: <xsl:param name="queryRSRows" select="'50%, 50%'"/>

    After: <xsl:param name="queryRSRows" select="'40%, 60%'"/>



BACKING UP FILES

Always make new database back-ups of your schema repository and user databases prior to making schema changes and performing database upgrades. Failure to create back-up copies can limit your ability to recover from a an upgrade failure, design change issues or other unforeseen failures.
