Reusable Group - expand size

I have a reusable group that is set to show job postings based on search criteria. Each section in this group has a button that says “view job”. When this button is clicked, I want the reusable group to expand in size so that additional information on the posting can be displayed. I would only want additional information for this specific posting to be displayed, not all postings within the reusable group.

Is there any way to do this?

I would consider building a separate group, perhaps called “Job Specifics” ; then program the “View Job” button so that it sets state of group “Job Specific” to current cells job.

You can then show/hide the new “Job Specifics” group as needed (when user clicks “View Job”) The data in the new group, will be unique for each job.

Hope that helps

Fantastic, that is exactly what I wanted to do.

The new box that is now displayed is larger than my reusable group and doesnt fit on the same page. I want to create a workflow so that when this new box appears (from clicking view job button) the page length is increased to fit the new box. I imagine this will be done through a custom event but have never done this before - any idea how?

Thanks!

I do not know about changing the size of your page via a workflow.

You might be able to do that… Perhaps another member has some thoughts…

The only thing I can think of is:
a) design the UI so that re-sizing the page is not a requirement (Possibly a pop up, that more or less dominates the page)
b) If you can put your dynamic data (the info of the jobs) in a text input; there is an option with text inputs where you can select “Stretch to fit content” That feature will automatically format (stretch the page length) of a text representation
