Ability to align Column "Result" to either Left or Right
This would be handy for viewing Dollar/Currencies - i.e
Sub Total: $23456.00
GST: $ 2345.60
Total: $25801.60

At the moment, the GST component would be aligned "Left" looking like this:
Sub Total: $23456.00
GST: $2345.60
Total: $25801.60

We are speaking solely about the forms, I assume?

Hello Kirill

Yes - just in the form

I just read how my original post turned out - It's not how I wrote it!

A pic is on the way!!

Hmmm - can't add a pic to old posts.

I'm hoping you know what I'm getting at.

When the cell takes all the available form's width the value goes to far to the right - that's why we align everything to the left on the form.
Thus can we assume that the right alignment applies only to the cells with 1/4 width?

Hello Kirill,

Yes please - just for Single Column widths.... Essentially Numerical columns/values

Kind regards- Brett

As an experiment - we are now auto-aligning numbers and dates to the right of the cells set to Width 1.

Thanks Guys - looks better.

Kind regards - Brett

This is working nicely and looks tidier.
It would still be nice if we could select which fields are Left/Right justified via a drop list in [Column] Setup.

I've had a few cases where even text on single width columns would look better justified to the right.

The forms can look somewhat messy with the mixture of left and right when you take into account lookups and single column text. It would be preferable to have the left/right option for other column types.
basenine 10/3/2012 9:27:25 PM
Can we make all columns with width 1 justify to the right please?

Kind regards

Hello again,

I was wondering if any more thought had gone into this?
The option to Toggle left/right justification on all fields would be great.

With all the amazing things TD can do, is adding in this functionality that difficult?

As Scott mentions, when you have a mixture of references (that come through as Text - even though the ref might be numerical...I have an instances of this) it turns what was a nicer looking form into something a bit hagged. i.e I just converted a Numeric column into a Table, now the reference field is text....if I want it to be editable by static editing (just by double clicking the field) then I need to show the editable field - the reference - in the form on "View".
