From the wiki -

Quote:aligny Can be top or center. Aligns the text within its given label <height>. Defaults to top

Any reason why we can't have <aligny>bottom<aligny>?

I'd specifically like to use it for a wrapmultiline control.

Thanks.

Assuming you've tried it and it doesn't work (I think it works on images?) please post a ticket on trac and cc me. Make sure you include the exact control you're testing it with.

Cheers,
Jonathan

Just a small bump Smile It also doesn't work with the textbox control.
Maybe something that can be added after Eden release.

bump.
Was trying a horizontal grouplist with labels that have different fonts / size.
Can't get them all to touch the floor.

as a workaround you can put slide animations with condition="true" on that labels.

EDIT: hitcher´s solution is a bit nicer. forgot about that tag, thx.

I use <usecontrolcoords>true</usecontrolcoords> in the grouplist and then set the Y positions of the label controls so they line up when I use different fonts/sizes.

I hate to bump such an old thread but was this ever added? I see the trac ticket was closed. Did it falls through the cracks and just didn't get added to the wiki or should a new ticket be open for post-Frodo inclusion? I have a few places where this would really come in handy and the workarounds posted earlier wouldn't work; ie. multiline labels.

It wasn't added, just got closed in massive ticket cleanup (tickets with no activity were closed). I'll reopen it.
