Hi,
Is there a way to align the text property of a form so it centered instead of aligned with the top left of the form?

There is no alignment property so this cannot be done with a simple method. You could pad the text property with spaces - if you hav a resizable for you would have to write code to keep it centred though.

Note that this is not the default behaviour, and is non-standard. Users have come to expect this to be left-aligned. You should be careful with GUI design whenever you want to do something that is not standard, as it often confuses users.

With respect, a C Grade? For a correct answer AND a workaround?

Have a look at http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi73 - What's the right grade to give?


A: The Expert(s) either provided you with a thorough answer or they provided you with a link to information that thoroughly answered your question. An "A" can also be given to any answer that you found informative or enlightening beyond the direct question that you asked.
B: The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information to complete the task.
C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.

Remember, the Expert helping you today is probably going to be helping you next time you post a question. Give them a fair chance to earn an 'Excellent!' grade and they'll provide you with some amazing support. It's also true that a "C" is the lowest grade you can give, and the Experts know that -- so use it judiciously.

You can post a request in Community Support (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/) and ask a moderator to change the grade for you.

Cheers
