How to show create form in a table view?

Hi All,

The default form looks a bit "ugly" when label is display: block;

I change it to display: inline; but input elements are not aligned vertically.

The only way I fix it is using table:



		<?php echo $form->labelEx($model,...); ?>


		<?php echo $form->dropDownList($model,...); ?>


		<?php echo $form->error($model,...); ?>



But it is too long doing this for every form in the app.

Is there any simple way to do it?

Thank you in advance.


use of css with defult form yii :

label {

    display: inline-block;

    font-weight: 700;

    margin-bottom: 5px;


div.form label {

    font-family: tahoma;

    font-size: 12px;

    font-weight: normal;

    width: 200px;

        <?php echo $form->textField($model, 'title', array('class' => 'form-control')); ?>

        <?php echo $form->error($model, 'title'); ?>


Thank you n-r for your help :)

I guess this is what I was looking for:

div.form label




	display: inline-block;

	width: 170px;


And your styling is also nice :)

Thank you
