Grid Lines In Alarm Status Table

Howdy Folks!

We recently upgraded to 8.1.17 and we now have grid lines in the alarm status table component which drive me absolutely crazy. I noticed in the 8.1.16 changelog that this appears to have been intentional.

Vision Alarm Status Table now has an intercell spacing of 1px to make rows and columns easier to distinguish.

I recall having to do something unintuitive to get rid of them while I was building the application, but don’t recall exactly what I did.

Any tips on getting rid of them or if this is just the way it is? I’d assume there is a way to override the default, but I haven’t come up with anything yet.


The change in 8.1.16 was reverting a regression, amusingly. The lack of gridlines was a difference in appearance compared to earlier versions.

To change back, you literally set the inter cell spacing back to 0, 0; you’ll just need to extract a reference to the inner table inside the component. There’s some stuff on the forum about how to do that; try looking for “recursive getComponents” and “alarm status table buttons”.
