Can I modify column widths in actionsearch

Hi there,

I was wondering if there is a way to format column widths in the %ACTIONSEARCH% output without loosing the cool action formatting. I tried using %TABLE{columnwidths="30%,30%,40%"}% before the actionsearch, but with no results. I tried using the nohtml="on" option but the header dissapears, as well as the state formatting.

I find this useful when I have more than one table in the same topic: All the tables would render with same column widths.

I'm surprised the %TABLE macro doesn't work - that's what I would use. Without setting up a detailed testcase and working through it myself, I can't be sure, though. Anyone else tried this?

Hi there,

I prepared a test case to clarify my question:

%ACTION{ state="open" }% 1Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam non enim vitae ante porta imperdiet ut feugiat ante. Maecenas vitae. %ENDACTION%
%ACTION{ state="closed" }% 2Lorem ipsum dolor sit %ENDACTION%
%ACTION{ state="open" }% 3Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam imperdiet nunc vel est ultrices eu mattis augue pellentesque. Donec pellentesque metus vitae nunc vestibulum aliquam. %ENDACTION%
%ACTION{ state="closed"}% 4Lorem ipsum dolor sit %ENDACTION%
%ACTION{ state="open" }% 5Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam non enim vitae ante porta imperdiet ut feugiat ante. Maecenas vitae. %ENDACTION%
%ACTION{ state="closed" }% 6Donec pellentesque metus vitae nunc vestibulum aliquam. %ENDACTION%

---+ Open Actions

%TABLE{columnwidths="30%,70%" tablewidth="100%"}%
%ACTIONSEARCH{ format="| $who %BULLET% $topic |$text $link| " header="| *Action for %BULLET% Topic* | *Issue* |" state="open" topic="%TOPIC%"}%

---+ Closed Actions

%TABLE{columnwidths="30%,70%" tablewidth="100%"}%
%ACTIONSEARCH{ format="| $who %BULLET% $topic |$text $link| " header="| *Action for %BULLET% Topic* | *Issue* |" state="closed" topic="%TOPIC%"}%

Notice how the Closed Actions, even though it has column widths specified, does not look the same as the Open Actions. Please see screenshot below. I am using Google Chrome. For presentation purposes, it would look better if both tables have the same width. Aesthetics only.
