Interface Fields not selected in order

Postby JimmySterylian » Sat May 28, 2016 6:53 am

Take a look at the picture below:

On that interface every field is selectable. When I test the interface and try to navigate using the Up & Down keys, they are not highlighted in order. For example, when Master Volume is highlighted and I try to go down on Music Volume next by pressing down, the Countdown field is highlighted instead, the same thing happens with every other field, the cursor highlightes whatever it wants to, well, it follows a certain pattern but I don't think it's supposed to do that. However, using the Left & Right keys seems to be working fine. When Master Volume is highlighted and I press the Right key, the Music Volume is highlighted like supposed to. How can I fix this?

NOTE: Other interfaces I have created do not have this problem.

Set the fields to left aligned, then make sure all the fields share the same X coordinate. Then check to see that they are selected in order.

At the moment, although the text of the fields is lined up, the selectable icon part is not.

If you want your text to be centered you can give each field set dimensions, set to centered and then line up the X values.

E.g. Make all the fields 200px x 32px, center the text and align the x values.
