SkillBuilders IR Header Float–1.1

I’ve just release an update to the IR Header Float plug-in. The update fixed some alignment/spacing issues that some people experience. That fix also allowed me to simplify the plug-in by removing the adjustment step during installation (which is now automatic).

Developing plug-ins in my “spare time” over the last few months has been a blast! Stay tuned for the next one, it’ll make your day. Smile

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.
