Automatic Enlargement of Long Text Boxes

During the creation of Shopping Cart or Purchase Order, there is a provision to enter a note in the Overview tab and at the Notes and Attachment tab. It is often cumbersome to scroll through the entire note in case the text exceeds the visibility area.


The user should be able to provide and view comments without scrolling through the text boxes on header of Shopping Cart, Purchase Order and for Notes for any Business Document. To improve the readability of the text entered into a long text box, a provision is made by means of a link beside the long text box. On click of this, a popup is rendered that contains the entire text in the note without a scroll bar.

It shall be possible to view the entire text on the screen. You can also enter new text or modify the existing text on the same screen.


To use the feature, you have to first activate the Business Function SRM_CONT_IMPR and then activate the Customizing switch Automatic Enlargement of Long Text Boxes (SRM_700_LONG_TEXT_POPUP) under SRM Server-> Cross Application Basic Settings-> Activate/Deactivate Automatic Enlargement of Long Text Boxes
