What MCU/Processor/Board and compiler are you using?


What LVGL version are you using?


What do you want to achieve?

I want the text of the drop-down list to be right aligned.

What have you tried so far?

lv_obj_set_style_text_align() …

Code to reproduce

Add a code snippet which can run in the simulator. It should contain only the relevant code that compiles without errors when separated from your main code base.

The code block(s) should be formatted like:

/*You code here*/

Screenshot and/or video

If possible, add screenshots and/or videos about the current state.

You can do it like this:

    lv_obj_set_style_text_align(lv_dropdown_get_list(dd), LV_TEXT_ALIGN_RIGHT, 0);

I tried, but it didn’t achieve right-aligned text. :sob:

In v8.3.3 this code:

    lv_obj_t * dd = lv_dropdown_create(lv_scr_act());
    lv_obj_set_style_text_align(lv_dropdown_get_list(dd), LV_TEXT_ALIGN_RIGHT, 0);
    lv_dropdown_set_options(dd, "Apple\n"

results in:
