Multiple Data values in a Text box

Hi,


Trying to create a field, that outputs : "Name, @username" on the one line.


Much like twitter does.


Working from this example - it gets all messy with positioning, when you have varying lengths of usernames / names - (as they are pixel positioned) and looking for something more dynamic.


Can you pull Multiple data into the one field, or is there another way around this?


Thanks

Unfortunately, you cannot do it. Text box and labels have fixed sizes. You can only fit characters within the size you set. Also, you can only set a single data value to both widgets.


It would be nice to have a widget that can change size depending on the number of characters that it contains. We might include this on the future update.


For now, you can use three labels/text widget. One for name, one for comma and one for username. However, spacing will be a little messy.

Thanks John for the quick reply - Def. put in the hit list. It would be very hand to simply "," a new data output into a text feild

On a second thought, there's a workaround on your issue.


You have to use a variable to store 'Name, @username' and do an On Page Load event to load the variable to a label.


When storing values in the variable, you have to get the value of 'Name' and then use 'concat' function to add the strings ', @' and then 'concat' function again to add the username.

This is tricky and I'm still working on how to do it. I am trying to analyze the rental car example: http://www.justinmind.com/usernote/te...


If you download that prototype, look at 'Login Box Advanced' master, and click on the label next to 'WELCOME:' you will see how it's done.
