DCBROWSE multi row - numeric field not right justified

#1 Post by Andy Edward »

The multi-row in DCBROWSE in xbase 2.0 express 263 is behaving differently from xbase 1.8. The numeric fields for the multi row cannot be right justified even if the align clause is present.
Please see attached screen and program. Can anyone suggest a solution?

thanks

It would take too much time to try to fix this in eXpress++.
It's a behavior change in Xbase++.

Instead, I have given you a workaround that, I think, produces a better result.

File is attached.

Hi Roger

The work-around does not work well. The fixed font helps to right aligned, but once you drag to open the field wider, the problem arise. The header still right justified but not the content.
Is there any other possible work-around?

Why would you need to open the field wider?
