Hello,

In the list on the left of the screen you can see the screens or the controls if you press on the 3 dashes. You can search the name of the textbox that is not visible. If you don't remember the name start selecting the textboxes one by one.

In order to change the order, pick the control you want to change and go to Home--> Reorder and move it where you want it.
You can notice that its order is changing also in the list on the left of the screen.

Hello,

 

Still i'm having a problem when dragging the combox box its not pushing the text boxes to the right intead its floating above them.

 

Thank you

Hello Salah,

This is how it works. When you add a new control you can position it. When you drag it around it doesn't change the position of other controls.
If you want this to happen, you need to go to the X and Y properties of the controls and write the correct expression.
For example TextInput1.X= Combobox1.X+50

Hello,

 

Still even when putting ComboBox1.X+300 in X value of text box or radio button it doesnt move. PLeae check picure attached.

 

Thank you

Hi @Salah,

 

Are the TextInput control and the Combo box control within same Data Form (Edit Form or Display Form)?

 

I agree with @Mike8's thought almost. If you want to find the TextInput box which is not visible, you could consider click "Tree View" button, then you could find your hidden TextInput box via the Search box or the expanding controls tree:13.JPG

 

 

When dragging a control within the Screen, you could change the position of current dragged control rather than the position of other controls.

 

If you want to move a Combo box to be in front of a Text box and the Text box to be moved backward automatically, please make sure that the Combox box control and the TextInput control are within DataCard controls of a Data Form.

 

More details about reordering Data Card controls within Data Form, please check the following article:
