A field control in a Form applet will get "longer" or "wider" on the right hand side with the following circumstances noted below.

For example, a form applet that has a field control for Account Name will show a "longer" "wider" version of the Account Name field control if the field value is longer than the control length, the control has a drilldown to another view for that field, and the control is read only.

The Field control is showing a field value that is longer than that the field control width.  

The Field control has a drilldown defined in that applet for this Field Control.

The Field control is read only.

This does not affect functionality, it is a display issue.

The expected behavior is that form applet's layout of the controls should not change.  The for applet's control layout should be fixed. 

This affects the Form applet's appearance and will make the Form applet controls that are usually in columns appear to be misaligned on the right side.
