Pinned topic Centering an entire view and form

‏2013-09-17T18:17:11Z |

Is there a way to center the entire view and form without creating a HTML template to do so.  I have a view and form with just a few fields on it but I want those fields and their column headings centered in the middle of my page. Is there an easy way to center all contents of the view and form?

    Joe,

    If you need to change the structure of the html that's generated, then you might need to create a new html template or use something like HTML Data Layout or Data Layout with a layout template.

    If you just want to change to a different ootb structure (eg, label above) then you may be able to just pick a different pre-existing template (eg, label above).

    If you just need to tweak size/positioning on the page, then typically you would do that with CSS styles,  in which case you could specify a different / custom stylesheet (a) via Theme,  (b) via V&F  stylesheet override in the buidler itself or (c) via a stylesheet builder that overrides the styles V&F uses by default.

    Try a right-click inspect element on the element(s) you want to reposition/resize,  in Firebug or Chrome (or use IE F12 Dev tools) to see what CSS styles are controlling the current positioning of the element(s) you want to alter  (in Chrome/Firebug at least,  I'm able to try different style values in place in that debugger to see how they affect the posiitoining - not sure if IE dev tools allows that or not)) so you'll know what styles you might want to tweak / add / override.

     

     

    I hope that info helps,
