    Simple Form Question

    kraftomatic84
      Hey Guys,

      I'm trying to build a simple form, and when I drag in text input fields, they all align to the left of the form box. I want to be able to drag and drop, and place text input fields where ever I want on the canvas. I can normally do this, but with the form, I cannot for some reason.

      Is there something I'm missing?

      Thanks.

          Form is a layout container. One of its primary purposes is to control the layout of its child components.

          If you want to be able to explicitly control the position of the children, you must use Canvas. (or Panel with layout=absolute). It IS posible to turn off the auto-layout of a container, but that is very tricky stuff.
