Hello there,

if have got a datefield, for which I want to define a fixed width of 150px. If i set the width I just see the datepicker icon but not the textfield.

Without a fixed width it looks like this (default settings):

Setting a fixed width looks like this:

What am I doing wrong?

The "Width in Pixel" also includes the label. Try setting that from 0 to a fixed value, or increase the width in pixels.

What I usually do in such cases is to define a constant LABEL_WIDTH which I then return from getConfiguredLabelWidthInPixel() and then in getConfiguredWidthInPixel() I return "LABEL_WIDTH + X" where X is the width I want my field to be. This only works by making the changes in the code, not using the SDK, but after using Scout for a while I find myself using the SDK less and less anyway, so I don't see this as a big drawback.

When it comes to Form layout, Layout Debugger (CTRL-SHIFT-F2) can be useful.
