View Full Version : Less space on fieldLabel

29 Jun 2010, 11:53 PM
I have multiple fieldsets which consist of comboboxes, textfields and numberfields. Each fieldset is configured with "flex: 1". The corresponding fieldlabels are consuming too much space even though the strings are much shorter, which makes the space between a fieldlabel and textfield/numberfield too wide.

It seems like the default space reservation is for fieldlabel is way too large for my usage. For experimentation, I set all the fieldlabels to 1-letter-strings, and they still consumed as much space.

How do we reduce the default space reservation for fieldlabels?

You can set labelWidth on both form and fieldset (and fieldsets inside forms) to whatever size you want, this is not the default however it's a fixed size.

Could you show me how to do that?

I tried

xtype: 'numberfield',
fieldLabelTip: 'Saksnummer',
anchor: '100%',
labelStyle: 'width:30px',
fieldLabel: 'Super Long Label That Cuts Off?'

But still get the big space between them as you can see in the picture.
