The Alarm Analysis grid expansion options allow you to set each grid to print differently in Run mode, depending on how much or how little of the grid's data (rows and columns) that you want to be printed. These printing options apply to Alarm Analysis grids that are printed as part of a display; the options do not apply to grids that are printed using the Print Grid command. There are three grid expansion options available on the Printing tab of the Alarm Analysis Configuration dialog box:
No Expansions – when the display is printed, the grid is printed as it appears in your display. Any columns or rows that are hidden do not print.
Vertical Expansion Only – when the display is printed, the grid's width is printed as it appears in your display; however, the entire length of the grid is printed. For example, if you have a grid that retrieves 100 rows of data (vertically), the grid will be printed on as many pages as are needed to show all the rows.
Vertical and Horizontal Expansion – when the display is printed, the grid's entire length and width is printed (that is, all data retrieved by the grid is printed).
Fit to – additionally, with the Vertical and Horizontal Expansion option you can specify a number of pages that you want the grid to `fit to'. For example, if the grid is too wide to fit on one page, you can set the Fit to option to one page. The grid will then be scaled so that all the columns appear on one page.
