Header & Top Menu on a "Frozen Pane"

Added by Deon Joubert almost 11 years ago

In Excel and other spread sheet packages it is possible to freeze the header rows of a table so that it would be possible to see what column header is related to the current data, even if one was viewing row number 1764.

If the header and Top Menu frames were frozen in the same way on a Redmine page it would aid navigation, even if one has followed a forum or issue thread right to the bottom.

What do you guys think, does this warrant an issue request?

I just realised that a decent enough way to get passed this in the mean time is to use the "Home" button on the keyboard to get back to the top of the page.

+1 must needed feature as with increasing data it gets too difficult to check the columns.

I've been slowly tweaking a copy of RedmineCRM's Circle Theme for my personal use, source is here if you want to see. One of the main points I've been working on is ease of visibility and access with long-scrolling pages.

In the theme.js file, I use jQuery's scrollTop() and offset() functions to set the elements as "fixed" when the page scrolls down beyond a certain point. I recently tweaked the code to cater properly for both user and admin pages. Perhaps I should extend this same functionality to table headers as well..
