Why my app shows as left aligned?

Dear Experts,

 

I want to say that I am done with my app. I want to thank everyone who helped me and shaped me to achieve this. This means a lot to me. I will thank to every person from their name when I find a solution for this issue. 

 

My concern is,  the app shows as left aligned when I open the app from the sharing link as follows, 

As you can see from below image there are space in the right side. I want it to have center align. Can I do that?

Also, another handy tip for you: if you want to hide the purple navbar put add this to the end of your app play URL in the webbrowser.

Re: Why my app shows as left aligned?

Check the X property of gallery, form, or controls that are placed directly on the screens in your app.  The X, Y coordinates set the upper left corner of the controls in reference to the screen or the container, like a gallery or form, they are in.  By setting those values using a formula you can center the app.  For example, if you want to center the header label you would set X = to (screenname.width-labelname.width)/2.  That would take half the whitespace on the screen and place it to the left of the label.
