multi-column listbox column justification

multi-column listbox column justification

Is it possible to NOT have all of the columns in a multi-column listbox left justified?

everything appears as...

John Doe   |$20.00
Jane Smith |$4000.00

I would like...

John Doe   |    $20.00
Jane Smith |$4000.00

can it be done?


RE: multi-column listbox column justification

The only way you can do it is to "pad" the data with leading spaces.

heres how
but DO NOT DO IT where it affects the data.
you need to know the full lenght of the cloumn in th elist box
Say its 20 characters long And your Currency field is MyMoney

So to add spaces to the friont would be

NewValue = space(20-len(MyMoney)) & MyMoney
