View Full Version : Defining Portlet Size

09-28-2007, 08:43 AM
Hello Everybody,

I like to Know how configure the size of Portlets in Pentaho. I looked in documents but didn´t find it.
It must be a tag, but not even examples have it.

Any help will be appreciate.

Portlet layout is configured using JBoss Portal-specific instructions. For example, the position of each portlet on the page is specified in pentaho.war/pentaho-portal-object.xml. I'm not aware of a size property but JBoss Portal documentation (http://labs.jboss.com/jbossportal/docs) would be the place to look.

Be aware that any changes you make to *-object.xml or portlet-instances.xml by default will not take affect unless you change all occurrences of if-exists to overwrite (instead of keep).

What file is the "widget definition file?" Also, can you post any links to reference documentation that helped you?

Look at style tag with respects height and width values. I made like this and it works well!!!
