Issue:

It is difficult to do Inline editing for a Grid Portlet with large string values in the row.

Steps to reproduce: 

  1. Login to CA PPM as admin. 
  2. Go to Administration --> Studio --> Portlets 
  3. Search for "Project Schedule" portlet. 
  4. Open the Portlet. 
  5. Go to List Column Section --> Layout. 
  6. Add the Objective attribute among the Selected Columns. 
  7. Click Save and Return. 
  8. Go to Home --> General page. 
  9. Click on "Manage my Tabs" icon and add the Project schedule portlet in any of the Tabs. 
  10. Open a project and add a huge text value with many lines (more than 25). 
  11. See the row corresponding to that project in the Project Schedule portlet. The row will be having a bigger height to display the entire data. 
  12. Double click on that value to do inline edit.

Expected result: The editable box should be of equal size

Actual result: The Editable box becomes of very small height showing only 2-3 lines at a time.

Environment:
CA PPM 14.4, 15.1
Cause:

Due to the defect CLRT-80970

Resolution:

Open the Project and edit or modify the Field value from the properties page, instead of doing it through inline editing.

Additional Information:

Our Engineering team is looking into the issue and will check if this can be fixed in any of the upcoming major releases of CA PPM.
