Hi,

When a CombBox is placed next to a vertically centered label the text in the CombBox does not align vertically which produces a bad look.

The TimePicker by comparison looks good. Also the left alignment of the text in the TimePicker also looks better.

Can the CombBox be reworked to center the text and have a more consistent layout with other controls?

Regards

Anthony

Hi Anthony,

I have tested the scenario and I reproduced the behavior. Please set same height request to the TimePicker and RadComboBox. 

Here is my code:

<StackLayout>
    <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal" >
        <Label Text="RadComboBox: " VerticalOptions="Center"/>
        <input:RadComboBox Placeholder="Select Items" BackgroundColor="Yellow"
                            HeightRequest="30" 
                            VerticalOptions="Center"/>
    </StackLayout>
    <StackLayout Orientation="Horizontal" >
        <Label Text="RadTimePicker: " VerticalOptions="Center"/>
        <input:RadTimePicker BackgroundColor="Red" 
                                VerticalOptions="Center" 
                                HeightRequest="30"/>
    </StackLayout>
</StackLayout>

and how the ComboBox and TimePicker looks:

 

Give this a try and let me know how it goes. Also, make sure to use the same height request for the ComboBoxItemTemplate. If this is not the case, please send us a code snippet of how the combobox and timepicker are defined.

Hi,

Thanks, that does look better. It would be nice if all editing controls shared the same layout so that you don't need to force things like height.

Hi Anthony,

Thank you for your feedback, we will have it in mind. 

About "same look for input controls" -> of course we strive for this, although sometimes it cannot be done due to a restrictions. The ComboBox uses Entry control, while the Pickers don't. In addition, Combo and Pickers are different controls with different implementation.
