is there any possibility to get the AbstractBooleanField Label on the left side of the checkbox?

Overwriting the mehtod "getConfiguredLabelPosition()" isn't working.

Hi Thomas

I think this is not supported so far. If you really need it you could create a custom implementation of SwingScoutCheckBox. Have a look at the following method, that's where the label is set:

protected void setLabelFromScout(String s) {

This overrides the default of SwingScoutFieldComposite. To register your custom checkbox you can use the extension point org.eclipse.scout.rt.ui.swing.formfields.

I have the same question (SWT application):

Current label position:

Wanted label position:

We have tried a lot (combination of a LabelField and CheckBox in a GroupBox, in a SequenceBox)... Nothing seems to work.

Custom Implementation of the CheckBox field in SWT to get a StatusLabelEx seems to be an overkill...

What are the possible solutions?
