Introduction:
When design a form and hide the label field, one common issue later the form shows some space, though the label is hidden. We explain why and how to correct it.
Question:
We have a text box formatted to hide the label, this field is within a column. The field for the label is still showing, leaving a gap without text. Why?
Environment:
Catalog 14.1, 17.1
Answer:
The reason for this is the attribute label width. By default it is 100 and this value is not changed, though it is designed to be hidden, there will be some blank space display on the form. To correct this, set the label width from 100 to 0 and save the change.
