skinny window - app distorted

Description of problem:
This is an [RFE] for oVirt engine UI responsive design improvements

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
There are several responsive design issues. A more thorough review session needs to take place, but some low hanging fruit:
 * resize a login screen to < 700px, and the form doesn't behave well
 * resize the welcome page to be very short and a strange vertical scroll bar appears
 * resize the main app to < 500px and it does some nasty stuff as it drops into mobile mode (see screenshot) 

I recommend a design review with the PatternFly team, and using this BZ as an "epic" or tracker for responsiveness issues we find.

Bug tickets must have version flags set prior to targeting them to a release. Please ask maintainer to set the correct version flags and only then set the target milestone.

Comment 3 Yaniv Kaul 2016-10-23 07:04:39 UTC
Any updates on this?

Comment 4 Greg Sheremeta 2016-10-25 12:29:49 UTC
Yes, Serena and I have been in contact. I hope to pick this up after our epic on memory leaks is solved.

Comment 9 Alexander Wels 2017-06-07 11:59:33 UTC
Everything but the first issue noted has been taken care of. In particular when you make the login screen small enough to fit on mobile screen the label and field are switched for user name and password but not the profile selection.

Comment 10 Greg Sheremeta 2017-06-07 12:16:00 UTC
The first issue can be tracked in Bug 1457951

Comment 11 Pavel Novotny 2017-12-20 20:44:49 UTC
Verified in

I resized the browser window to 480 x 800 px (most common resolution for older mobile devices) and went through different areas of the web UI:
- welcome page
- login screen
- Webadmin - Dashboard, dialogs, main views and detail views with various widgets

I have not found any distorted parts on the page.
All the dialogs, data tables, menu buttons, Dashboard, etc., always aligned or stacked nicely - nothing was overflowing or cut off -
of horizontal/vertical scrollbars appeared.
See the attached panoramic screenshot for details.
