    Default embedded browse center column heading

    I'm thinking the Advanced Column Title properties is broken for en embedded browse.

    In the attached open the form chainsf1 in design mode, then double click the embedded browse. Right click and select the "Advanced Column Title" properties button. Try centering the column title 'Chain' or right justifying or left justifying it. I can't make it work.

    Anyone confirm?

    I'm on V8 3142-1914.

    Bob,

    I am not on the same build but You need to move the justify item above the text item. With this dialog you are basically constructing an xdialog string so just as when building an xdialog any formatting instruction needs to come before the text. Click the show code button at the bottom of the dialog to see the string generated.

    Bob,

    This thread may be of use--

    The second MP3 file has an example of what Tim is referring to. I believe I lost both the image and the file in a OS crash I had last week so cannot post here--well, maybe will download them myself! :)


    EDIT--here is what I was referring to.

    Tim,
    Thanks for the insight. It never dawned on me to change the order of the text and justify offerings.

    Mike,
    Thanks for link. I had looked at that when it was first released, didn't recall that it had anything about the column title.
