my dialog box is too big....
« on: August 24, 2016, 03:47:33 pm »
trying to create a dialog box for a 42 circuit electric panel.
it all functions, except it seems to be too tall.

IS THERE A WAY to restrict the height of  a boxed_column of :edit_box (s)?
because I have a column of "Description" that has the right number of rows, and it fits.
and a column of "#", :Text, and it fits...
my columns of "Wattage" (also :edit_box and :text)  do not meet a height requirement.
???

structure is as shown in the attachment, but....

everything is in one ROW.
inside that row are 7 columns
a column of text labels, a column of edit boxes, three columns of edit boxes mixed with blank text boxes, and reverse of the first two.

I have now tried fixed_height = true; in the outermost element, ROW, and for each individual column.
no joy.

how do I know the entireheightthere?
