I want to use TAdvSmoothListBox to display a chat session and use the Alternate property to display the different sides of the chat. Some things I am struggling to do are:
1. I cannot see how to right indent bubbles. The Indent property only indents from the left, even if the bubble is right-aligned.
2. All bubbles are the same width, regardless of the length of notes/caption. Is it possible to make the bubble width dependent on the width of text entered? i.e if I just enter "No", the bubble should be shorter than it I entered "Hello world".
Thanks. 'HorizontalSpacing' works fine. Appreciate it if item 2 can be added soonish.
Hello, I am desperate!!
I saw this post and I am trying to achieve the same bubble effect for a chat using the TAdvSmoothListBox, however, I can't seem to set the width of an Item. Bubbles is described but how to achieve it is not. Currently, I can set the Items.Indent to an integer to indent, but if I could set the width of the Item to something smaller than the width of the listbox, this would work. I don't see any way to do this. I have attached a picture of what I am trying to emulate. Is there also a way to change the color of each box?
