    Patron List Does Not Contain Name or Barcode

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02

    In version 16, when we call up the Circulation "Patron List" the only column we see is the Patron ID". There should be two additional columns: Patron Name and Patron Barcode.

    Prior to version 16, the column display was controlled completely by pc_tab_col.eng. From version 16, the clients still use pc_tab_col.eng as a basis, but that can be overridden by local GUI settings.
    To adjust these local settings, right-click on the gray header of the display, in this case "Patron ID", and a window should pop up showing all of the fields available for that display (in this case Patron ID, Patron Name and Patron Barcode). Note that even columns which appear in pc_tab_col.<lng> with zero percent (0%) are included here. Make sure that all the fields you want to see have checks in their associated box..
    You can also adjust the width of the columns..
    These column choices and widths are saved locally, overriding the pc_tab_col.eng.
    The file in which they are stored is AL500/alephcom/tab/UserTabCol.ini. This file could be saved and put in a repackaged GUI, allowing controlled column appearance and column width definitions at setup time. For example, in the user list:.
    * a setup with patron name and patron id (no patron barcode column), and each column taking half of the window, would be:
    * a setup with patron name and patron id and patron barcode column, and each column taking 1/3 of the window, would be:
