An example of a table in Fishbowl.
Tables are used in many places throughout Fishbowl. A table is a column/row layout that displays data. Tables are used to display search results, order items, inventory details, and much more. Tables can be customized to fit the needs of a user.

Customize tables

Table customization is performed by clicking on column headers, and also by right-clicking column headers to display the context menu.

 

Table settings are automatically saved, so the table will load with the customized settings every time Fishbowl is used.

Rearranging columns

  • The order of columns can be changed by clicking on a column header and dragging it to the desired position.

Sort order

  • The sort order of a table can be changed by clicking on a column header. A small triangle will appear on the column header indicating that the table is now sorted by that column.
  • A table can be sorted using multiple columns by holding the Ctrl key down and clicking each column header that should be included in the sort.

Column visibility

  • Columns can be hidden by right-clicking a column header and choosing Hide This Column from the context menu.
  • Additional columns can be displayed by right-clicking any column header and placing a check mark next to the desired column in the context menu.
    NOTE: Some tables have many columns, so it is necessary to click More in the context menu to see all columns.

Resize columns

  • Columns can be resized by clicking on the vertical line between column headers and dragging it to the desired position.
  • A column can be resized to fit its contents by right-clicking the column header and choosing Auto Resize This Column from the context menu.
  • To resize all columns to fit their contents, right-click any column header and choose Auto Resize All Columns from the context menu.
  • To make all visible columns fit within the table width, right-click any column header and choose Fixed Width Table from the context menu.
