Error description

  • Switching Views in DOORS does not bring the focus back to the
    first column.
    
    Issue seen in 9.3.0.X, 9.4 and also in 8.2.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    =============
    A DOORS Client installed on English locale machine, with Left to
    Right orientation is being considered:
    1. Open a module and add a few columns (more than 8-9)
    2. Save this as a new view
    3. Scroll to the extreme right so you can see the last column
    4. Now switch to some other view which has 3-4 columns (say
    standard view)
    5. You will see only a blank screen
    
    Impact:
    ----------
    This can be confusing to the user and they would like all the
    views to be defaulted to the left hand side when selected so all
    data is displayed.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • User can be left with an empty view if there are less columns in
     a newly selected view.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Made the view reset to the left side whenever the view is
    changed,
    

Temporary fix

  • There is no workaround for this issue
    

Comments

  • This happens in versions of DOORS prior to DOORS 9.5.1.2. This i
    s a client side fix.
