A few questions about form layout

One of my biggest hurdles with Ninox forms has been setting up the style and layout I want.  Hoping people can help with these specifics:

- When i put a View element on a form, it seems to require that the element has a displayed name, which appears above the view as a title.  How can I remove this title from the view? Specifically, I want to save the space on the form.

- When I add a button to a form, there padding around the button is much bigger above it, than to the sides or below.  Is this a bug or an intentional design feature?  Can I reduce the padding above the button?

  • Hi Peter

    Yes it is a little frustrating - Ideally you set the tect colour to same as background but you can do this on views. You can kill the view name but this just gives you and untitled label instead :-(

    As for the buttons - but it seems that Ninox sets out a fixed spacing around object. turning off or on boraders makes no difference....

    Thanks Mel.  I guess there's no easy solution right now, but thanks for the answer.  :-)

  • For a button you can use a formula field, hide the label, style like you want and use the 'on click' event.

    On all forms you can set the Label Position ro "Hidden" (no label at all) or "Placeholder" (Label is inside the element and disappears when you rype something in). In both cases you save the space above the elements

    Thanks Steven.  Might try the Formula with "On Click" event as a workaround.

    Peter, it seems the ability to hide a label isn't available on Views, which makes things tricky.

    Peter, now I know what you mean. Yes, on views it does not work. :-(
