Panel Field Properties

Postby john w » 22 February 2015, 19:53

In the properties for the panel field you can set certain text attributes. Currently you can set text color and font modifiers (B,I,U).

It would be a nice feature to also be able to select the font type (e.g Arial, Calibra, Times Roman, etc) and font size (8,10,12,...)

These quick settings would eliminate the need for creating or modifying a Visual Style for a one time use.

I think I understand your point, I'm wondering how frequent this situation can be.
One thing you can do is use some javascript, using an executeOnClient you can get the field object and change the style.font property directly.

I cant speak for others but I have long used one of type faces to create headings on the form, along with lines I can create a nice layout without high graphical overhead. I don't see a real advantage of using JavaScript over a Visual Style. Both seem to add a level of programming unneeded for such a simple change. Especially when there are other font modifiers already present, color and style

Just a suggestion
Regards

The suggestion is to give the ability of set other style exception (like color and background): font, font size, ect.

I'm sorry, I was trying to write some description in the task and I got this result, the final text is:

"The suggestion is to give the ability of set other style exception (like color and background): font, font size, and other propreties related to the text visualization."
