Adding text labels in the Dialog Builder

Use the text control to add information including instructions, labels that are not associated with individual controls, or explanatory information to your dialog box.

To add a text label:

  1. In the Dialog Builder, click Text and then click in the form location where you want to place the top left corner of the control.
  2. In the Text dialog box, enter the information you want to display in the Label text box. The maximum character length is 250 characters including spaces.
  3. If you want to change the size of the control deselect the Auto checkboxes beside the Height and/or Width text boxes and modify the values, which are specified in pixels.

    If the Auto checkbox is selected the control is resized whenever the displayed text changes, otherwise the entered value is used.

  4. Specify the alignment of the text in the control area by selecting Left, Right, or Center in the Alignment panel.
  5. Click OK.
