Does anyone know how to left justify an alphanumeric display?

Brian,

You could use a to string to format your output before sending the data to a
display.

Brian,

A logging Alphanumeric will left justify the data for either scalars or
arrays.

I'm running VEE 5.01 and am trying to set up a list of  items that are
obtained  from various user inputs throughout the program.  I read the
inputs into individual global variables.  The variables are then read and
displayed to separate alpha numeric displays on a main panel.  It would be
cleaner and more readable if I could left justify the data seeing how the
strings are not all the same size.  I made all of the displays longer enough
so that the longest string would fit, but the shorter strings are centered
and the data doesn't line up.  Does anyone know where in the software that
this option might be available or some alternative method?
Sincerely,
