When longer field/alias names are user they do not work very well since the pop-ups are a fixed size. Can the pop-ups be auto-sized to ensure the entire field name AND the values are visible?
any headway on this?
I agree, it's hard to see why this hasn't been incorporated yet.
Agree - this would be super helpful.
Owen Evans Owen Evans Any word on this? Is this being worked on? I assume not since the post is 6 years old now.
There is a significant project underway to rework pop-ups that should roll out sometime in 2018.
Is the rework of the pop-up still planned for 2018 to roll out?
Thank for the reply!
Great idea and should flow through to Portal for ArcGIS as well. It is also frustrating that the pop-up is currently unmovable and often covers the feature being looked at.
OGL Engineering Owen ... do you know if this is related to the web map rework that will also support group layers in AGO web maps? thx
This is really necessary to create professional presentation that is unique and engaging. One size does not fit all!
You can enlarge the popup box when you are in draft mode (as in the first screen shot). It would be soooo nice to be able to do the same in regular old mode.
One thing you can do to mitigate for the tiny popup window is to work on the attribute table and the popup configuration to compress things in both your attribute table and your popup window. If you go into your attribute table (before you bring it into Arc or join it up) you can concatenate multiple fields and even concatenate your field names into your field content. In the popup configuration window, you see the field names twice. You can edit the second column of them down to as little as you want. In my example, I've shortened the field names down to "-" (dashes).
So, if you start out with attribute data that looks like this:
You can either go with the default presentation, and have the popup window look like about this:
Or play with the attribute presentation and the popup configuration to make it look like this:
It would be much nicer, of course, to have any of the following capabilities build into the software:
- The option to set the default size of your popup.
- Having the option (as in ArcGIS Pro) to click in the upper right corner of your popup box and have it open up big.
- Having the field names and their attributes wrap to the display width of the popup box. Scrolling up and down isn't nearly as bad as going right left right left to read about an item.
