Side Aligned #

Using the side-aligned attribute will display the <sp-field-label> element inline with surrounding elements and the start and end values outline the alignment of the label text in the width specified.

Start #

Use side-aligned="start" to display the <sp-field-label> inline and to align the label text to the "start" of the flow of text:

<sp-field-label for="lifestory-1" side-aligned="start" style="width: 120px">
Life Story
</sp-field-label>
<sp-textfield
placeholder="Enter your life story"
id="lifestory-1"
>
</sp-textfield>
<br />
<br />
<sp-field-label
for="birth-place-1"
side-aligned="start"
required
style="width: 120px"
>

Birthplace
</sp-field-label>
<sp-picker id="birth-place-1">
<span slot="label">Choose a location:</span>
<sp-menu-item>Istanbul</sp-menu-item>
<sp-menu-item>London</sp-menu-item>
<sp-menu-item>Maputo</sp-menu-item>

Use side-aligned="end" to display the <sp-field-label> inline and to align the label text to the "end" of the flow of text:

<sp-field-label
for="lifestory-1"
side-aligned="end"
required
style="width: 120px"
>
