Formatting Custom Text Elements in Print Task

Question asked by mvolz47 on Jun 19, 2014

I am creating a parcel search app where the selected parcel's information is added to a print-out with a custom print task.  I am using customTextElements to achieve this goal.  For the layout I have a field alias name and then I want the value next to it and then a carriage return for the next field alias and its value and so forth for all the parcel fields that I would like to display.

I have 2 issues with this setup.
1.) I would want the starting point of the values to line up vertically.  I started out with a few spaces between the alias and the value, but aliases are different lengths so the start of the values did not line up vertically.  I tried some formatting (<p> </p>, %nbsp;,<blockquote> </blockquote>), but none of them worked.

2.) I want the value to wrap if it can not fit in the row provided, but I want it to continue to be lined up with the values.  Currently, it wraps to the beginning of the next line which where the field alias is displayed.

Any help or hints to solve these issues are greatly appreciated.
