Magnifying a field

Maybe too simple to even mention here, but I know for many it's a hidden feature.  When in the web client, most field can be expanded by invoking the magnify feature, via the F2 button.  Can really help make the tool more user friendly.

Re: Magnifying a field


One of the parameters below might help you.



Web parameter: enableTableMagnify

Web parameters change the behavior of the web clients that connect to the web tier. You can set some of these parameters from the web client login URL, some from the web tier configuration file (web.xml), and some from both.




This parameter specifies whether the Magnify button is visible for editable tables in the web client. If this value is set to true, the Magnify button appears on the top-right corner of editable tables in the web client. If this value is set to false, the Magnify button does not appear in the web client.


Valid if set from

Web tier configuration file (web.xml)

Requires restart of the web applications server?


Default value


Possible values

true, false
