Subject [jira] Reopened: (CLK-537) Checkbox should support label on the right side

Joseph Schmidt reopened CLK-537:

> Having the checkbox label on the LHS provides the best appearance with the form auto
No it does not :(.
I can send you hundreds of screenshots that it looks plain ugly :(.
LHS looks nice for the other fields but not for checkbox(and the Radio - this is why the Radio
is already RHS - so it should the Checkbox). (Even the CheckList control renders it on the

> Changing the default rendering behaviour will change the appearance of many existing
I haven't said about changing the *default* behavior. I know how important is for Click backward
This is the same issue like the one with rendering both an icon and the text in a Link control

> If you need to change this rending layout there are a number of options available to
The rendering works fantastically except this field :(. Doing manual rendering just for one
single field is not efficient as this auto-rendering is Click biggest advantage.

If you take a look at many web forms you will observe that Radio and Checkbox elements are
mostly (for Western languages) wiht the label on the right.

in the second column of the rendered layout (with a small space between them).
