QReport controls and margins

is there a way to obtain a margin inside a QRControl (a QRLabel for example)?  The problem is that framed QR controls with right alignment yield a display and print out where the text is sticked to the frame.

An horizontal margin spacing between the frame and the physical beginning of the text is the required behaviour. This margin could be from left of from right depending on the alignment of the text inside the control.

many thanks

Hi fadyg,
seems no way. I have an easy solution:

write two procedures and assign all onClick event handler for

left-alligned controls to:

procedure TQuickReport1.QRDBText1Print(sender: TObject; var Value: String);
begin
  Value := '  '+Value;
end;

for right-alligned controls:

procedure TQuickReport1.QRDBText1Print(sender: TObject; var Value: String);
begin
  Value := Value+'  ';
end;

Hello Igor,

The problem goes beyond that. Your solution works fine with standard reports with a constant font size.  But if you change the font size between one control and the other, all alignment (left or right) is lost.  

What I'm looking for is a TQRCustomLabel descendant component that would introduce 2 new properties Horizontal margin and VerticalMargin that would express in terms of inches or millimiters.

thank you for your comment
