View Full Version : MessageBox - multiline alert text alignment

11 Aug 2010, 1:22 AM

I would like to know how to align multiline text in a MessageBox.alert()

I tried <div> or <p> but the text is never aligned.

Could you help me?

How do you want to align it? How should it look like?

Ideally I'd like a column left to the icon and a right column for the text

I tried to had a style in the <div> with a float:right and text-align:justify
It seems to work for IE but not for Firefox...

You also need to give it a width, so its floating to the right but is also sized.

by default, the message box width seems to be 100px

if I fix my <div> width to 50px, there is a big margin between the icon and the text and all the text is pressed to the right

I need to find the proper width...
