A Screen FOSI question

A Screen FOSI question

Adepters,

We are using Adept*Editor Ver. 7.0.
One of my content models looks a lot like a definition list (or a two
column table).

In the SCREEN FOSI, is there a way to have two inline elements (on the
same line) where the first is left justified and the second is right
justified?

If so, can I add leader dots to the central white space?

Thanks for your time

A Screen FOSI question

You need to define a charfill (character fill) to output the dots. The
output is from a usetext source. Which e-i-c should have the usetext
depends on if the or element is optional or repeatable
and if the dots should be optional or repeatable. This also determines
how placement is coded (after or before ). If both
and are required and not repeatable, it doesn't matter
whether the usetext is coded on or .
Note: Generated text must be set to display in the edit window for the
dots to display.
FYI: This particular topic and others relevant to screen FOSIs are
covered in the ADEPT Stylesheet Design Workshop: Authoring offered by
ArborText training (training@arbortext.com).

A Screen FOSI question

Are you developing a screen FOSI? Side-by-side alignment is not
supported in the edit window. The online help in 7.0 (or the printed
documentation in previous releases) has Formatting Support Tables that
show what is supported for paper and in the edit window.
If your FOSI is for paper, then you need to use algroup to get
side-by-side alignment.
