How can I right justify amounts in a combo or list box?

How can I right justify amounts in a combo or list box?

How can I right justify amounts in a combo or list box?

Why do numeric fields in a column of a list or combo box appear to be left justified with leading spaces or centered?

Is it just me or would numbers look better if they were right justified inside the column.

Is there anyway to setup a combo or list box that looks good in columns?

RE: How can I right justify amounts in a combo or list box?

Hi again Edsedlar,

 Sounds like this question was posted before the 'Count of pixels question'.
 Convert your numeric values to a specific length using the STR() function (10 by default). Add that to the listbox and they will be aligned. (That is, if you're using a fixed length font or some text alignment routine like I mentioned in the other question).
