Bug Description

webclient 3.x (most of latest patches applied - per Jason Boyer)

Performed following from web client:

1) Search catalog consortium level fo rtitle "Gone with the Wind" for all books

2) Selected Edit next to barcode wishing to modify

3) the volume copy editor is displayed with truncated data for barcode, created and activated dates and call number

Attaching example screen shot with columns highlighted

NOTE: snapshot taken on display at 100% zoom setting - have to reduce to 50% to see the full column and at that size it is not really readable for my eyes!

Hi Robert,
Part of the issue here is that prefix and suffix are displaying by default. They can easily be removed using the column picker. I signed off on the code that added those fields, but I've been planning to remove them as defaults as part of my work on bug 1735808.

You can also re-adjust the widths of those columns using the Configure columns options. I do think it would be a good idea if all barcode columns were automatically sized to the length of a barcode (see bug 1645862). Looking a little more closely, even with the affixes removed, I don't think there is a way to readjust the widths of the remaining columns so that all the data displays untruncated.

I'm not sure what a good solution would be. We could make that column a little wider, but there is very little space as it is for the section where we make the copy edits.

I am not sure of the proper naming conventions for the screen and code - but would it be possible to create a section above the editing area with the displayed columns so that they are on a line by themselves?
