How to right align a column in a Web 2.0 weblistbox?

Suggestions on the best way to right align a column in a web 2.0, weblistbox ?

Many thanks

the only way I’ve found is to make my own websdkuicontrol and have a perfect bootstrap table element that I can modify the way I want.
I can set the witdh os a column even if it has been filled with a webdatasource (which I dont use btw),
I can also set the witdh of each column.
I even will soon be able to have draggable rows…

The WebListBoxStyleRenderer class will do the trick. Here is an example assuming your have a WebListBox with 3 columns, add this code to its Opening event:

Var centeredStyle As New WebStyle
centeredStyle.Value("text-align") = "center"

Var rightAlignStyle As New WebStyle
rightAlignStyle.Value("text-align") = "right"

Me.AddRow("Left", "", "")
Me.CellValueAt(Me.LastAddedRowIndex, 1) = New WebListBoxStyleRenderer(centeredStyle, "Centered")
Me.CellValueAt(Me.LastAddedRowIndex, 2) = New WebListBoxStyleRenderer(rightAlignStyle, "Right")

If you want to create more advanced cells, you can use the generic WebListBoxCellRenderer. A tutorial can be found here:

Hope this helps!


please note that this will not work if you use the webdatasource in conjunction with the weblistbox.

In that case, you can achieve it with some CSS.

  1. Add the class to the control you want to modify:
For i As Integer = 0 To 10
  Me.AddRow("Foo", "Bar", "Baz")

Me.ExecuteJavaScript("$('#" + Me.ControlID + "').addClass('rightAlignExample')")
  1. Add this CSS to your App’s HTML Header section:
.rightAlignExample td:nth-child(2) {
  text-align: right;

The result:
