I'm building a report where dollar amounts are displayed to the right of production descriptions. My customer would like to have the report display trailing dots (".....") between the end of the product description and the dollar amount, very much like a restaurant menu. I have tried padding the display value with a large number of dots and disabling the "Can grow" property, but that doesn't seem to work; somehow the dots are simply not rendered if the length of the textbox value becomes too long. I've also just added a dotted bottom border to the textbox, but my customer doesn't like the way that is diplayed; they want the dotted line to appear just to the right of the product description, not beneath it, which is what a bottom border will do.

Is there another technique that would work? Maybe a custom formatting string of some kind?

Hi Brian,

You can separate the dots with spaces to prevent hiding them.

All the best,
