Minimum width for column in layout depends on property name



A custom Section has been configured to define the header for column in repeat grid. This section contains two elements: TextInput field and Icon.
The value for TextInput is determined in pre-activity.

For both elements the "Wrap text" option is used. But even if length of text in TextInput is less than length of property name for this TextInput, one can see that there is distance between fields.

Error Messages

Not applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1) Create a Section to define a Repeat Grid header.
2) Section must contain two columns with a field and an icon.
3) At runtime the space between field and icon is too large.


Root Cause

The design is questionable here because the icon to be presented is actually just a "Required" standard icon. So there is no need for two columns.


Multiple local changes are possible to handle such situation on this old release of the product. It has been decided to use a JSP insert (<pega:reference name='.My_Property_Name' />) :
