Javascript Right aligning a checkbox and label

Hi there,

I have a GUI given below. I want to align the "Run Report " checkbox to the right side.
http://jsfiddle.net/ambuli/o8ek6q2r/
When translated, the "Run Report" text may become longer, so I want to move the text to the left as it grows.
So, the GUI looks something like below.


[   Report Name[    ]                                                  Run Report[] ]
[   Report Name[    ]                               Translated Run Report[] ]

You need to use style float:right:
    var runReportLabel = document.createElement("label");
    runReportLabel.style.verticalAlign = "top";
    runReportLabel.style.float = "right";
    runReportLabel.innerHTML = "Run Report";
    runReportLabel.htmlFor = "runReportCheckBoxID";

    var runReportCheckBox = document.createElement("input");
    runReportCheckBox.type = "checkbox";
    runReportCheckBox.id = "RunReportCheckBoxID";
    runReportCheckBox.style.float = "right";
    saveNameContainerDiv.appendChild(runReportLabel);
    saveNameContainerDiv.appendChild(runReportCheckBox);

Open in new window

On the side note, I recommend you use the label for attribute as well. It translates to JavaScript htmlFor method (In my code above). That will make:
<label for="runReportCheckBoxID" style="vertical-align: top; float: right;">Run Report</label>

Open in new window
