    Hi,

    I was just whether whether anyone had heard of a standard for placing prompts next ton entry. I've seen some some sites where the prompts are left aligned and look as follows :

    Code: <entry field with margin box>

    Other example where the prompt is right aligned

    Code: <entry field with margin box>

    I'm looking for some that may have been setup somewhere as Microsoft design standards for GUI windows. Looking at this message submission form, all prompts are left aligned. However this could be due to the fact that a table is used.

    Its a trivial issue but I thought I'd see if anyone knows of a standard that may already be defined and should be followed.

    Any help will be much appreciated

    Thanks in advance
    Regards

    Bilal Haniff

    Although I wasn't able to view your examples from your post, you might want to take a look at Microsoft's "Official Guidelines for User Interface Developers and Designers."

    The chapter on Design Specifications and Guidelines might be especially helpful to you.

    Hope this helps!
