Pinned topic IBM BPM 8 Coaches Label

‏2013-02-04T11:12:53Z |
Hi,

Is there a simple way to change the label alignment of the field from top to left like you usually have in most forms?

Thanks in advance.

    What I have been doing is to tell the Coach View to hide the label so that only the control shows. I then place a second control (Output Text) prior to the control and place the label in that.

    You also have some examples in the Sample Exchange, in the BPM Community, of how to accomplish that.

    Check the following link:

    I went ahead and created an IBM Request For Enhancement found here:

    Folks can always add comments or vote upon it if desired to have additional attention given to it.

    Let's say I placed the control in Vertical Column then how would it work? I don't think it work then. Also I don't understand why IBM cut down on controls from 7.5.

    I think that 8.0 was focused more on the tooling and less on implementation. You can do much more with the 8.0 Coaches than the 7.5 Coaches and still be "coloring inside the lines" but this seems to come at the cost of the base functionality that is present OOTB. The community has already added a bunch of additional controls on an "as is" basis.

    Building on what Andrew said, here is a link to just some of the as-is controls that you can use. Take these, combine with all the others on the Wiki ... and now we have many more controls than were originally present in 7.5.x.
