When more than six column names appear in Column Chooser, background text is obscured, because label is always in the middle. Can it be moved somehow? The screenshot is attached.
Thank you

Hope that helps

The solution does not help. Even if I put the labbel to the bottom, it can be closed if put more colums to the Column Choser. The user can change the size of the Column Chooser and the label also disapears.

Hello,

I'm afriad I don't understand the problem. You asked if the label could be moved. The code above shows how to move the label to the bottom of the Column Chooser screen. Please let me know what you need and I'll do my best to help
thanks

Irrespective of where we show the label, the issue arises when the number of columns is large enough to cover the complete height of column chooser. The text label is still in the back ground and might show may be half of it, or there might be some odd looking lines between two column names.

The complete solution would be 
1. Label should be centered or bottom or right or left not with respect to the complete control rather with respect to the available blank space in the control
2. If there is not enough space to show the complete label, it should either be not visible or if it is visible, it should something aesthetically better than the current solution.

Vivek,

I'm afriad I don't know of any solution currently that covers this requirement completely.
If I can find a way that may be satisfactory to you, I'll let you know.
Thanks
Richard
