Multi Column Form Question

Multi Column Form Question

Hi all, new to the forums,

I'm going to be building form layouts, of the two to three column variety. Ultimately the form fields will be replaced by GXT widgets, but I want to lay them out using HTML initially.

My question is how good is the CSS Form Builder at creating multi column form layouts? I want to create some templates that will drive the majority of this data intake application.

My concerns are based around:

* How easy it is it place particular labels/fields in specific columns, and specific ordering in the column. I know html decently, but my CSS is relegated to styling not heavy positioning.

* Level of granularity in terms of styling for the form elements: padding, line height, borders, spacing (vertical/horizontal) between labels and fileds, etc..

Thanks for the feedback on this!

The maximum number of columns that form builder will create is 2. It will not create a 3 column layout

I think the screen shots in the CSS Form Builder help documentation for the Customizing CSS Section will give you a good idea of the level of control form builder offers:
