    Hey Nelgin,
    This message is winging its way to you
    from my BBC Micro in the adapted Mode 7msglist.js, I'm having trouble chaning the "from" column width, I have changedthe number for From and To in the max_len section of msglist.js however
    it only seems to change the to
    column...meaning that on a 40 column
    display you cannot see the subject
    (even pressing the different format
    options 0-7 will not display the
    subject). I'd like to reduce each to 10columns so that the subject can also beviewed. I can get it to display to andfrom on one line and the then subject
    underneath...but this looks a little
    messy.
    There's a picture of what I have at themoment at beebs.ddns.net/images/sync/msglist.png as you can see From is takingup a lot of real estate!
    Any thoughts welcome,
    Cheers,
    Fred

    Well, it's a good start, though the 40 to 80 column might need a bit of work :)

    It looks like setting LEN_ALIAS = 15 or something like that will do what you are wanting. Not sure if that's because max_len isn't working as intended or doing something else.

    Try setting LEN_ALIAS are sbbsdefs.js has been loaded and see if that gets you closer to what you're looking for.

    Thanks for that I had noticed the
    SBBSdefs.js file but thought it might
    effect something else as well. Changingthat has solved the issue with the Frombut now I can't locate where the size
    of the # column is located, it
    currently has a length of 5, which i'd
    like to change to 4 just t eek out a
    bit more space. At least now you can
    see the message subject, to and from
    all on the same screen!
    Thanks again for your help!

    var digits = format("%u", list.length).length;
    /* Column headings */
    console.add_hotspot(CTRL_S);
    printf("%-*s ", digits, "#");
    though it looks you could try hard setting the format of digits to 4 characters, but be aware that it may not display properly for groups
    with over 9999 messages.
    I've not tried it, but that's my best guess.

    Changing any values in sbbsdefs.js is definitely *not* recommended.

    Yes, I should have pointed that out. sbbsdefs.js is not something to
    mess with. That is why I suggested changing LEN_ALIAS after sbbsdefs.js
    had been required, in the actual msglist script.

    pretty sure that's a good way to make your system unstable, dude.
