I've been trying to design a window for WebDesk ready for tomorrow (I have about a dozen left to do) and I forgot how much work is involved trying to make it display properly.
I'm still on the first one after 2 hours so would appreciate any advice.
I've been suffering Webdesk layout for years now and thought I had become quite good at it - I've been through all the guides and posts. And I planned in adavance so that when creating new fields I made sure they were all the same length where possible.
The problem is the Date/time field.
As soon as I add one to the window, all of the other fields get much longer and extend off the right of the screen. I've put them in their own group box and I've tried with or without labels, changed the length etc., everything is aligned perfectly to the pixel. Except when I've deliberately tried making tehm diffreent lengths.
I've only got this evening left so we may have to simply not use the date/time and go for plain text, which would be a shame, unless anyone knows any further tricks I can try.
Cheers - Adam. (We are using v7.7).
