Hello

i'm creating a Navigation form with Vertical Tab Left

and in button caption and icon it's automatically centered align and the form with 5 or 6 buttons wont look nicely

i want to make icons and captions in specific locations in every button

like all icons in the left aligned in column and all captions aligned in column

in regular button too i'm facing this issue

Hi. I think I understand the problem with the image with three buttons, but what is the problem with the image with more buttons on it?

Hi. Is this what you mean?


If so, all I had to do was select all the buttons and set the Alignment property to Left.

yeah that's what i mean

but as you can see in my example after setting caption and icons to left , icons take place at the end of button, for caption i can add more ( Spaces ) to make it look aligned in center but not the icons

Hi. For that, the only other thing I could suggest you give a try is adjust the Left Padding. However, it might have a side effect you don't like.

Unfortunately, that's the only thing I could suggest at the moment. If I have any more ideas later on, I'll let you know right away. Cheers!

Not lined up correctly?, it looks a little more to the right, perhaps one extra character?

I know this form looks "cool" but I don't use it because it has limitations. I make my own. Just make the left part of your menu a subform with the icon and description. You can modify the format to hide the fact that it is a subform and not a flat list. You'll have much more flexibility.

well, that's another way to do that , thanks for it but i think i will stick with the Nav form tabs as it's not limiting anything for me for now :)

and Yeah i wanna create cool forms for my client to look like web apps
