                                    I use BarEditItem with RepositoryItemLookUpEdit. I want to display a caption for the edit, so the PaintStyle property of BarEditItem is set to Caption. Is it possible to add extra space between the BarEditItem's caption and its edit?

                                    Thank you

                                Hello Irina,
                                A similar task was discussed in the Skin property to increase adjust distance between BarEditItem caption and editor ticket. Please refer to that ticket for more information.

                                  Hi Stas,

                                  Thank you for the answer, but I find adding spaces to the caption in order to increase the distance between BarEditItem caption and editor cumbersome and hackish. I want to specify the exact distance in pixels similar to how it is done in LayoutControlItem.

                                  While BarEditItem doesn't provide a way to specify the distance between its caption and editor, I agree that this functionality will be very useful. I've informed our developers about your scenario, and they will discuss the possibility of implementing it in the future. Please watch for our What's New announcements of future releases to be notified of newly introduced features.

                                  In the meantime, you can use the approach suggested in the answer.

                                  Hi, is there some new development in this issue?
                                  We need to increase spacing between BarEditItem caption and its Edit, but we cant add spaces to the caption, because of localization issues. We also need to have this functionality on our every form with ribbon.
