Six scroll bars results in awkward user interface RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using PP 2010 with SharePoint 2010.  The issue is that a lot of times there just seems to be a ton of scroll bars displayed to the end user, depending on such things as screen resolution.  What is particularly awkward is when you get:  1) a set of scroll bars for the SharePoint page, 2) a set of scroll bars for the zone, and 3) a set of scroll bars for the SSRS report within the zone.  It is not realistic to expect the average end user to navigate this type of maze

    Anybody have any helpful tips on how to avoid the situation shown in the image below?  Thanks.

  • Scroll bars can be annoying. Try fixing the height/width of report and report web part. For PPS by default reports are set to percentage of page, change that to pixel according to your report (10px greater than report dimensions).

    Also try setting the SSRS report view to 'Fit to Page' or other view setting.

  • Umair,

    There are view settings that I overlooked in PerformancePoint 2010 -- Page Width and Whole Page, which may prove useful.  I have not seen 'Fit to Page' anywhere yet, but I get the concept.  Thanks.

  • You may also want to try to use CSS to remove the scrollbars.
