Hi Mary,

I suppose you want to center those fields around a common horizontal baseline.

You might try this if that is what you want. Should work with different fonts and sizes.

Two fields, one button.

Kind regards
Bernd

   local tDescent1, tDescent2, tBot1, tBot2, tDiff1, tDiff2, tRef
   local fFormattedBottom1, fFormattedBottom2
   
   put 120 into tRef

   put item 4 of the formattedRect of line 1 of field 1 into fFormattedBottom1
   put item 4 of the formattedRect of line 1 of field 2 into fFormattedBottom2
   
   put item 4 of measureText(line 1 of field 1, field 1 ,"bounds") into tDescent1
   put item 4 measureText(line 1 of field 2, field 2 ,"bounds") into tDescent2

   put the bottom of field 1 into tBot1
   put the bottom of field 2 into tBot2
   
   put tBot1 - fFormattedBottom1 + tDescent1 into tDiff1
   put tBot2 - fFormattedBottom2 + tDescent2 into tDiff2
   
   set the bottom of field 1 to tRef + tDiff1
   set the bottom of field 2 to tRef + tDiff2
