Choosing walls that should be calculated with EnumList

Imagine you are a painter and have to select which walls to paint. You enter the Length, Width and High of the room and then you can choose the walls to be included in the calculation “Walls area (m²)”.

This is the expression in the EnumList Suggested_Values:

LIST(
" 🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱",
"🧱               ",
"               🧱",
"🧱               ",
"               🧱",
"🧱               ",
"               🧱",
"🧱               ",
"               🧱",
"🧱               ",
"               🧱",
"🧱               ",
"               🧱",
"🧱               ",
"               🧱",
"🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱🧱 "
)

The whitespace character is a special one. Because normal whitespace get’s automatically cut off by AppSheet in EnumList Buttons. I tested all kinds of whitespace characters. You can find them here:


Some are working, some are not.
I use the “figure space”.

Thank you @Grant_Stead :slight_smile:
The Downside is, that this is working only for mobile screens. When I change to Tablet or fullscreen, the formatting get’s lost.

As long as we cannot read the size of the user’s screen, I could only switch between DEVICE and BROWSER.

Little update:

How does one enter a “figure space” character, or any of the others in the wiki?

If you croll down there is this table:

You can just copy and paste the different Character.


Not everyone is working in AppSheet. You have to try.
I made good experience with
hair space
em quad
en space
figure space
