    How can i make all controls expand to width of form?

    Looks mediocre and cramped when controls are squashed. 

    With checkboxes, the right solution would widen the label text just enough so all the columns fit the width of the form. The following css works for a 2-column control, but would fail for 3 or more columns.

    .form-multiple-column .form-checkbox-item {width:40% !important;}

    thanks

    I had a similar problem with the collapsing headers because they were being orphaned by a stray </div> tag. So perhaps you can play with getting this into a different Div that will allow it to expand more.

    To expand the width of the text boxes & textareas on the form width, you can use the following CSS codes.

    .form-all .form-textbox, .form-all .form-textarea, .form-input{

    width:100% !important;

    }

    For the check boxes, I would suggest to use width by pixel until you get the desired result. Example:

    .form-multiple-column .form-checkbox-item {

    width:190px !important;

    }

    Thanks!

    thanks!

    hope this can be made built-in. I think that should be default layout. Or a property in the property box for these controls. 

    thanks
