Module Settings Accordian

Hey Joe, 

In release 2.3.5.5, the Accordian on the Module Settings pages doesn't auto-grow/shrink.

For instance, on a blog instance, there are a lot of settings in the "Social Settings" section so the height of all the other sections is the height of the "Social Settings" section.

Any chance this is an easy fix?

Thanks,
Joe D.

Re: Module Settings Accordian

I don't think there was anything that changed about it since the accordion was added. Whatever item has the highest height, it seems to make all the accordion items the same height as the tallest one (the one with the most content).

I think the only easy solution would be to break up the Social Settings so that it is smaller and maybe also the Side Bar sections may have to be separated to reduce the size of the other accordion items.

I'll see what I can do.

Best,

Joe

Re: Module Settings Accordian

I'm pretty sure this wasn't issue prior to 2.3.5.5. Do you think this had anything to do with it?

"Thanks to a good suggestion from Tim Cadenbach, we added some nice ajaxy transitions for the jQuery UI tabs and Accordion used in administrative features and elsewhere."

Thanks,
Joe

Re: Module Settings Accordian

It could be the version of jQueryUI which was incremented in Web.config, you could experiment with older versions and see if it changes, but I think the accordion has always been that way. Maybe something got changed in the grouping of settings, its hard to remember.

Re: Module Settings Accordian

Hey Joe,

I found the problem with the accordion, I had a misconfiguration so it was not using the autoHeight:false, I had it like this:

{fx:{opacity:'toggle',duration:'fast',autoHeight:false}}

but that was incorrect because autoHeight is not part of the fx, it should be like this:

{fx:{opacity:'toggle',duration:'fast'},autoHeight:false}

I will fix this for the next release, but you could fix it immediately by specifying it on the ScriptLoader control in layout.master like this:

<portal:ScriptLoader id="ScriptLoader1" runat="server" JQueryAccordionNoHeightConfig="{fx:{opacity:'toggle',duration:'fast'},autoHeight:false}" />

Hi Joe,

Thanks!!! I thought I was going crazy, because I didn't remember it being the way it is now. 

Later,
Joe D.
