Grow Repeating Group to a size and then stop and allow vertical scroll

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone can help me with a repeating group problem. I am trying to grow a repeating to 2 rows and then have it scroll. I have another instance where I would like it to grow to 5 rows and then have it scroll. In the instance with 5 rows I would like it to grow to 1 then 2 then 3 then 4 then 5 then scroll. I have been putting the repeating group inside a bounding group and setting it to “collapse height when hidden” but it does not do the trick. It would be awesome if repeating groups had an option to “expand to X size then scroll”. Please see the attached image for clarity of my problem.

Hey there!

Here is just an idea. There are probably many other ways to do this too. This was just the first idea that came to mind.

You can have 2 repeating groups. Have one of them visible if the repeating group is less then 5 and set it to full list. Then once the list changes to 5 or above then you can make a different repeating group visible that is not a full list but maybe a scrolling list.

Does that make sense?

Let me know if you need more explaining.

Hope that helps! :blush:

Yes thanks that was my first thought and it works for the grow to two rows option but on the 5 rows option I would have to have 5 separate repeating groups that I show and hide until I hit 5. Any other thoughts?

Why do you need 5 separate repeating groups?

Can you just have 2?

1st Repeating Group - Your first 5 items as a full list.
2nd Repeating Group - Your list of +5 items as scrolling list.

Maybe this image will help. I want the card to expand up to X point (5 rows) without additional white space. Once it hits 5 I want the user to be able to scroll. The user may not have 5 datapoint though while its growing from 1,2,3,4

Ok. Let me try to set up an example for you. Maybe that will be clearer. :blush: It is just going to take me a little bit of time to make the example since I have to do this in between appointments.

Ok, here you go. This is what I meant:


Jason you did it again. Wow I feel stupid. So set the first repeating group to full list and then hide a second repeating group set to scroll. I missed the details in your first response. So sorry. Thank for the time. Wow…

thank you… (face palm)…
