We are using WSS 3.0 and have access to sharepoint designer.
I want to set the column header (and column) width for certain list views to a fixed width. This is because some of our column headers have long titles and we want all the columns the same width.
This is my first time doing this, not sure whether I should be using a css style and applying this to certain pages or just adjusting the column width manually / in the code.
I have googled this and tried the following:
1. Go into sharepoint designer (spd) and go into excel data view, then manually edit the column width (select column, drag width)
This had no effect so I tried…
2. Repeat step 2 but remove Nowrap=’Nowrap’ in code as descibed here: http://aanuwizard.wordpress.com/2010/08/01/sharepoint-2010-how-to-change-width-of-list-column/
Didn’t work either
3. I tried playing about with css styles by copying our core.css to a new style and playing about with this. What CSS properties should I be looking at? And how do I apply the style to a whole page/view.
Any help would be great, thanks gents
