Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to TextToControlDistance
.OptionsItemText .TextToControlDistance


This property specifies the default distance between text labels and edit boxes within a card.

Each group within a card can override the TextToControlDistance property setting. To do this, set the group’s OptionsItemTextGroup.TextAlignMode property to AlignLocal, AutoSize or CustomSize and set a custom distance to the group’s OptionsItemTextGroup.TextToControlDistance property.

You can also override the distance between the text label and edit box for a specific card field. To do this, set the field’s LayoutControlItem.TextAlignMode property to to AutoSize or CustomSize, and then assign the required value to the field’s BaseLayoutItem.TextToControlDistance property (the field object can be accessed via the LayoutViewColumn.LayoutViewField property).
