Aligning fields after adding a Form control

Userlevel 7

I have a custom screen with some fields in a column. I need to add fields from another view into the same column so I added a Form control. However, once I’ve done so, the alignment of the Form seems to be offset to the left.

Current setup in the screen designer

What setting/property am I missing?

Hi @Django  Have you added the PXLayOutRule in the .aspx page like below?


 <px:PXLayoutRule runat="server" StartColumn="True" LabelsWidth="M" ControlSize="XM" />


If the above is not fixed, please share the customization project here, if possible.

Hi Community,

Acumatica also allow to add field from another table (another View object) to any Form, Tab or Panel by this approach: DataField = “nameOfView.UsrAnyFieldName”

<px:PXNumberEdit runat="server" ID="CstUsrProductWeight" DisplayFormat="##0.000000" CommitChanges="True" DataField="Item.UsrProductWeight" />

My custom Tab has Form that based on one table and View object, but I add field to Tab from InventoryItem table on Stock Item screen:
