Subject RE: Re: Making labels wrap
Date Mon, 18 Dec 2006 14:31:00 GMT
I think he means that if I had a selectOneRadio with 2 options, the
buttons would appear right next to the text

O Item 1
O Item 2

But if I use a separate outputLabel I'd need to fake a two column
layout, where column 1 is just the selectOneRadio with no labels and
column 2 is the labels.

If I did that, getting them to align correctly with wrapping labels is
hard. I think I'd get something like this

O Item 1 with a very long
O Label that takes up
  multiple lines.
  Item 2 with another very 
  long label

I hope my ASCII art came out right. The selectOneRadio control won't
know how to space out the buttons because it doesn't know how big the
labels are.

If you're using outputLabel in conjunction with an input
component, you should set simple="true" on the input

Then you'd
  - Also set required="true" on the outputLabel to get the
    icon in the right spot
  - Also add a tr:message to get the help text to show
