This may be an easy problem but it has me perplexed. I have a series of text fields arranged vertically in a window. Each text field contains an amount, and I want them to have decimal alignment in the display.
Some values are negative: (123.45) and some are positive: 123.45. I want to add a space after the positive numbers so that the decimals will align between positive and negative numbers.
Adding a space to the string does not seem to work (chr(32)). There doesn’t seem to be a way in the format command to add a blank space, unless I am missing something. Excel allows a placeholder for positive numbers to force decimal alignment. How do you do that in Xojo?
