[Solved] DataForm Extension

Postby jnagle » Sun Feb 05, 2017 10:16 pm

Trying to use Dataform extension in Calc. DataForm works fine but I need a scroll bar to see fields that are off screen or be able make multiple columns for off screen fields.

Thanks

Could there be other extensions that would do the same?

You have the source code so you can do a very simple tweak to get more fields on screen.

Go to the Basic macros Dataform module and play with these two lines near the top of the module

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Const TXT_HEIGHT = 12 ' altezza caselle di testo
Const CTRLS_MARGIN = 5 ' spaziatura tra i campi di controllo nel dialog


reduce the TXT_HIEGHT eg change the 12 to an 8 or whatever to reduce height of fields
change the CTRLS_MARGIN = 5 to CTRLS_MARGIN = 0 or whatever to reduce gap between fields
