The spacing property is a spacing directive to display form elements.

This property defines the global distance between two neighboring form elements. In NORMAL mode, the front end displays form elements consistent with the desktop spacing, which is, for example, 6 and 10 pixels on Microsoft™ Windows® platforms. Some overcrowded forms may need to be displayed with less space between elements, to let them fit to the screen. In this case you can use the COMPACT mode.

By default, forms are displayed with COMPACT spacing.

For additional information, see the SPACING attribute topic in the Genero Business Development Language User Guide.
