    Unanswered: Align records vertically on a Tab Canvas page

    Hi,


    I created a new Data block on a Tab Canvas page. All
    the fields are getting aligned in a single row. i,e in 1 row
    and multiple columns. As a result many fields are not visible.

    I tried using a scroll bar and set the records to be aligned
    vertically instead of horizontally, still no go.

    Also the width of a tab page on the Tab canvas cannot be
    increased. Is this a bug or what?

    Is it so difficult to get the records align vertically on a tab page with
    a scroll bar enabled??

    This is really frustrating!

    ANY HELP IS WELCOME.
    Thanks in advance
    Sharath.

    You did not give any version info!

    I have never seen a Forms version (I have worked with 2000, 6i, and 9i) where you could not increase the size of the canvas. I would assume your problem is you (a lack of knowledge about forms). But, that is why we are here. If I am wrong about your knowledge level please give me more particulars on your situation.

    Just setting a scroll bar will not align anything. You will need to manually move the fields (or use the property palette values) to get them to be in the position you want. You might also need to set the lengths appropiately so that all the fields fit.

    Have your tried clicking on the very edge of the canvas? This should display some handles so you can resize. Alternatively you could open the property palette and manually set the size values.

    Hope this helps.

    Check the property attributes of the canvas and fields that they are not locked or grouped... if you are unable to manipulate the fields directly you can select them in the object browser, or directly from the canvas and then set a common property value for the vertical left position... You can also work with the dimensions of the canvas this way...
