    Posted: 22 December 2011 at 8:00am
We are using a TaskPanel with the xtpTaskPanelThemeListViewOffice2003 style, and have some issues with the vertical alignment of icon captions.  Captions are top aligned, rather than vertically centered with regards to the icon.

Do I have to create a custom theme to get the desired behavior (see illustration)?  If this is a FAQ, please point me in the right direction.

I ran into this too.

Visible caption alignment is very important for a UI control, yet this has gone unanswered since 2011.

I'm not sure any of the developers scan the forums for issues any longer. Perhaps a junior person could be giving the forum questions a quick scan to summarize questions/bugs to address later.

At any rate, the only thing that sort of works is to find the constructor:

CXTPTaskPanelPaintManager::CXTPTaskPanelPaintManager()

In XTPTaskPanelPaintManager.cpp

Change this:
m_nItemTextFormat = DT_WORDBREAK | DT_NOPREFIX;

To this:
m_nItemTextFormat = DT_SINGLELINE | DT_VCENTER | DT_NOPREFIX;

*Note that this removes multiline capability. DT_VCENTER does not work with DT_WORDBREAK!
