    hi all,

    I am caught in a small problem.

    When I am assigning normal values to a text field using setStringValue and making the text right aligned through IB, it works fine! But when I try to assign it NSAttributedString using setAttributedStringValue: the text appears in correct color and font but does not appear to be right aligned, it always appear to be left aligned irrespective of any setting in IB.:eek:
    I have tried to do it via code using setAllignment:NSRightTextAllignment and event tried to look for suitable methods in class references but cannot find one.

    Can anyone suggest me the appropriate method:confused:

    Thanks in advance,

    You could try providing a custom NSParagraphStyle for the attributed string, and use its setAlignment: method instead.
