For sure this has been posted before.

When doing international applications it is not easy to set the "static fields" (Label, ...) to a right width because the same sentence have different length in different languages. A possible way to solve this would be to set the field width automatically to the text width.

As this feature would produce that these label fields could overlap adjacent input fields, a solution could be to let fields sides to be set not only linked to window border, but linked to field side.

In the picture there is the same text in two languages. The same sentence in other languages could be even longer. In "Proposed", input fields adapt to static field widths.

What do you think about it?

I propose to use virtual Layout();

Then you can set sizes as you wishes, based on wide diapason of reasons. Smile

Oh yes, that is possible.

However I thought in something more standard, even integrated into .lay Smile

First of all, 'actual' is OK for me...

Anyway, possible suggestion how to achieve proposed: Perhaps we could have something like "WithLabel" template (similar to WithDropChoice), then layout issue would be resolved in CtrlLib...

Well, in fact, now thinking about it, it would be even possible just as flag of "Label".

This could affect static controls like Label and LabelBox.

In addition input controls like EditString have to be aware of it (resizing them) as if not the Label could overlap them.

No, I think Label could resize itself and the next widget after it... Smile
