Basic form layout variants and arrangement of form elements with labels.
The following three basic form layouts available:
- vertical (default) ‒ stacked labels and controls,
- horizontal ‒ two column form layout, for labels and controls,
- inline ‒ lay out all elements in one line.
They cover most use-cases. For special cases, they can be combined with the grid system and mixed with each other.
The concept of a control group with
vclInputControlGroup which groups an
input element together with a label so that they make up an atomic control.
For example a label and a checkbox if such a combination should behave
like a single control. The elements are aligned vertically.
Inline Control Group
vclInputInlineControlGroup is the same as the previous class but
label and control are aligned horizontally.
Vertical form layout with stacked labels and controls.
The horizontal layout uses two columns, one for labels, one for controls.
Left-aligned labels in separate column. Controls and labels are in line.
In this example the loose button group is used to lay out the buttons.
The layout columns can be divided with the golden cut
vclGridSpan-gcb) from the grid layout component
or any other ratio.
The inline layout variant with right-aligned labels in line with controls.
vclFormActionArea wraps the usual buttons on the bottom of the form
and is optional.
vclFormInline: Lay out all elements in one line.
vclFormHorizontal: Two column form layout, for labels and controls.
