Control Display Options

In order to change control appearance, the Layout tab of the control properties window contains the basic settings available in PowerForms.

Size, Color, Alignment, Font Size can be modified here :



Normally, the width and height is set to zero which allows the system to automatically adjust a control's size and occupy the maximum space available.
