New Plug-in in the Wild! SkillBuilders IR Header Float

Have you ever scrolled down a report with lots of rows only to loose site of the headers and thus the context of the information you were viewing? With the amount of data most of us are working with these days, it’s actually rather common. While there are a number of solutions for the problem, they can be surprisingly difficult to implement – until now.

Our latest APEX plug-in, the SkillBuilders IR Header Float, aims to solve the problem for Interactive Reports. It works by floating the headers at the top of the screen if the user scrolls past them. Then, if the user scrolls back up, the headers are placed back at their original positions.

Check out the demo by clicking here.

If you like what you see and would like to put it to use in your own applications, then visit to download a copy. Enjoy!


  1. Patrick,

    Thanks! I'm sure it will need some tweaks but the first release was long overdue...


  2. Dan,

    Pretty slick, especially on the newer laptops with the HD-style aspect ratio (which makes for very short pages!).

  3. This is already a very useful plug-in for me. Thanks!

  4. Can't wait for Apex 4.0 to be rolled out here at work so we can use it.
