textAlign:'center' causing 'top' to not work?

Whenever I use the property


In a label, it causes my 'top' property to go all wonky. I think that "textAlign:center" causes the label to be directly fixed to the center of the page no matter what, instead of just centering the text?

Could this be fixed, or clarified if I don't understand it? Cause right now I have to set textAlign and then set the position using left, right, and bottom, which is quite… Uncool.

  • if you place it in a view then it should work. Make sure to define height as well.

  • I have exactly the same problem, described here in the answer: http://developer.appcelerator.com/question/70821/make-the-whole-window-scrollable

    I put the textAlign:center into the view -> the text isn't aligned at all and still appears in the middle of the view.
