Hi,

I have DataEntry with Dock=Fill, is it possible to "repaint" or "redraw" DataEntry after changing form's size, so controls width corresponds form width?

 

Thanks

Alex

Hello Alex,

This is possible by using RadDataLayout control where you just need to dock the entire control to the form: RadDataLayout. This control has similar API and you will be able to easily replace the RadDataEntry.

I hope this will be useful. Let me know if you have additional questions.

Hi Dimitar,

RadDataLayout works ok, but one thing: the last field (or last row) is vertically aligned in the center of bottom space, see attached, how to set equal space between items? I don't see ItemSpace property... 

 

Thanks,

Alex

Hi Alex,

The last item is filling the entire remaining space and the content is vertically centered. You can set its alignment to top like this:
var lastItem = radDataLayout1.LayoutControl.Items.Where(x => x.AccessibleName == "City").First() as  DataLayoutControlItem;
lastItem.ControlVerticalAlignment = RadVerticalAlignment.Top;
lastItem.TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.TopLeft;

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.

Hi Dimitar,

thanks, works fine! One more question - if I have 9 fields and 2 columns - item #5 is 2 times wider than others, how to change item width? I have tried lastItem.Width, lastItem.Size, lastItem.DefaultSize - no luck

Just thought - perhaps I should add one more empty item, instead of changing width?

Hi Alex,

This is the only approach I can think of as well. In RadLayutControl the entire space must be filled by its child controls and the last child will fill the remaining space. 

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions do not hesitate to ask.

Ok, in case somebody need it - here a code to add empty item:

'Get last item on column 1
Dim lastItem As DataLayoutControlItem = RadDataLayout1.LayoutControl.Items(CInt(Math.Ceiling(RadDataLayout1.LayoutControl.Items.Count / 2)) - 1)
 
Dim li As New LayoutControlLabelItem
RadDataLayout1.LayoutControl.AddItem(li, lastItem, LayoutControlDropPosition.Right)
