Just playing around with the demo version of orbforms.

Is there an easy (visual, click & drag way) to set the size of labels ? Also inserting text into Fields would be nice too.

Thank you. Apologies if it is an idiot question please just point me to the FAQ with a minimum of abuse.

The label sets it's size based on the amount of text it's defined with. If you put five characters in the text property when you define it, and put 6 characters in in the code, you will lose the last character. It will size itself down if you enter fewer characters than you defined it with.

As far as the fields go, I believe you can only set the text in the code.

I haven't been using this for long, but I've found it to be pretty easy to learn and pretty stable. Have fun with it.

Yep. I managed to get that much through my tiny brain ;)

It's really the multiline part of the label that I want to get working.

And yeh it does look pretty fun and easy.

You may have already discovered this, but for multiline lables I've found that using a Field with editable and underline set to false, and multiline set to true works pretty well.
