Rtf area text formatting

Postby Riccardino » Tue Nov 11, 2003 7:59 pm

Hi,

I'm having a strange problem with a textarea field.
I created a Setting form, where I put 3 fields:
header, footer and logo
Header and Footer are text field (rtf areas), logo is a media field

When I put some rtf formatted text into one of the text fields, it refuses to take the alignment, always switching to left. I tried to:
change field's default settings
paste a previously formatted text from another application
write the text directly into the field

Nothing worked: I always get text aligned to left

OSX.2.8, Servoy 1.2rc8, MySQL 4.0.11a-gamma

Is your dataprovider (column) long enough? keep in mind that the formatting can occupies loads of space, rtf based on column varchar(50) will likely store no text at all.

I put the column to text, not varchar (it gave me problems with text longer than one line). I noticed that, in table's structure, the two text fields are not showing any length: do I have to specify it?

Text has unlimited length (no need to specify length)

So the fields are not responsible for that.
Hmmm: any other idea?

I'm still having problems with text contents. Maybe I'm doing something wrong:
when I enter a text in a field that has, let's say, a Verdana 10 pts as a default font and I change the font to Futura Bold 9 pts, the behaviour I expect is to have the text formatted with Futura bold 9 pts even after I leave the field.
But when I click out of the field, the text returns to fields default.

If it is the way it's supposed to work, how can I let the user format the text the way they want?

Thanks
