    To go about what? You need a much fuller description.

    Making lines and boxes in forms, like sales order forms.

    im gonna have rows and columns with sizes on top and then the quantity on the bottom.

    The developer that worked on it took a shortcut since there is no lines and boxes in Xcode and juts took a whole bunch of UIViews and made then narrow to look like lines.

    The thing is, he didnt make anything even, so the numbers aren't centered and the sizes doesn't align with the quantity below.

    If i do spend a whole crap load of time realigning all the labels and the narrow UIViews (which is extremely tedious because its a bit hard to have it even.) Can i get away with it?

    Or is it better to implement Core Graphics and do it the right way.

    Better yet, whats the best way to make sales order forms in iOS? Core graphics the only way?

    I've done something like that in html and core graphics. The CG code generated pdfs. This was for a report that was emailed.

    Having said that I have also used narrow views in a few cases. There were only a few though and they have to be positioned in code. Doing it by hand will make you crazy. This was for something that was more like a dialog box with some text and a few lines.
