Row Click Action Types

  • Dark

Article Summary

Report rows have many options to display actions when selected; by default, a Slider will be displayed when a row is left clicked in a Report. There are options to change this function locally for just one Report or globally for all Reports within the environment.


The following section demonstrates how to adjust the default Report Row Slider action through two primary methods:

  • From the Report Designer via the GRID VIEW Properties.
  • From the Report Designer via the ACTIONS Properties
  • From a Report Viewer by disabling Always Show Action On Row under VIEW > Grid.

Report Designer > GRID VIEW

  1. Create a Report in a Designer Project
  2. Within the Report Designer Properties panel, expand GRID VIEW. Set the Grid Setting Type to Specified
  3. The following settings are available for both left and right-click actions:
    Show SliderDisplays the Slider containing information about the selected Row item, such as the name, its type, and any actions related to the data type.
    Show ActionDisplays a menu with actions available for the Row type.
    Default ActionSets the action as configured in Designer Studio Settings.
    No ActionsDisplays no actions when a Row is selected.

  4. Select the desired actions and save the Report. For this example, left-click action is left as Show Slider, and the right-click action is set as Show Action. On the Top Action Bar, click Run Report
  5. From the Report, left-click to show the Slider and right-click to bring up the action menu.

Report Designer > ACTIONS

  1. Within the Report Designer Properties panel, expand ACTIONS. 
  2. The following settings are available:
    Override Action Context
    Enabling the Override Action Context Property allows users to add Actions for specifically sorted data.
    Group Action BehaviorChoose from Dynamic or Flow. This determines action behavior when multiple rows are selected together.
    Show Actions on Right ClickThis will override the default studio settings and allow actions on rows to show on a right-click.
    Show Actions on Left Click
    This will override the default studio settings and allow actions on rows to show on a left-click.

Report Viewer in the Page Designer

In contrast to the setting that can be edited in the Report Designer, disabling Always Show Action On Row disables the Default Action when selecting a row.

  1. From the Page Designer of a Page that contains a Report Viewer, navigate to the Properties tab of the Report Viewer. 
  2. Under VIEW > Grid, uncheck the Always Show Action On Row setting.

  3. Save and close the Report Designer
  4. Add the Page to a Folder. Then, navigate and verify that the Default Action has been disabled.

Designer Settings

In addition to the ability to change the default settings individually, they can also be changed globally across the environment. 

  1. Navigate to the System > Settings and open Designer Studio Settings
  2. Search for Row Left Click Action Type or Row Right Click Action Type  under the GRID header, choose the desired actions, then click SAVE.
