Centering in a query
« on: December 05, 2018, 01:49:39 PM »
I thought this was easy but cannot see how to center data within a column in a query.
How is this done?

As of PxPlus 2018, you can align data in a query column as  Default, Left, Center and Right justification. The Default setting for text values is Left justification and Right justification for numeric values.


Select a column, and in the Column Option interface the Alignment setting is next to the column Width setting.

Sorry, Ed, but as I mentioned, this was added to PxPlus 2018. Your image is from a previous version.

Will some sort of centering command/logic work?

There is not really any way to do this in the older query which was why we added this capability (along with others) to the Query+ logic in PxPlus 2018.

Likely you need to upgrade to the newer product or optionally you could develop your own query screen(s) for those instances where centering is desirable.
