Relative positions of labels


I would like to know whether it is possible to set the position of labes relative.

I got a label which gets data from a api, and it can be only one line or even 3 lines of text.

All of my other labels should go down relative to the size of my top label.

Is there a property in titanium that does this? Or knows anybody an other way to do this?

  • Hello Kevin,

    i think this idea is nearly what i wanted.

    Let me make a example:

    topLabel.top= 5; 
    secondLabel.top = (toplabel.bottom + 10);

    I hope it is clear what i want to do?

    my topLabel can have a height of 10 or 20 or … put in a number. Now my second Label should be 10px under my topLabel.

    • That's exactly what the vertical layout view does.
