Does anyone know how to add a space or field to add a note to the Field functions?

The first field creates a title which is nice, but I would like to add a space above it.

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.BannersAndPopups', new HeaderField($title = 'Sticky Note',$headingLevel = 3));

The other is to add a note to the page, when ever I add an echo = "something" it adds the space to the very top of the editor.

Thank you,

Hi Steve,

I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'adding a note' - but maybe this'll be of some help: apart from the HeaderField, there's also a LiteralField that lets you add HTML tot the form.

That did it, thank you...

This adds a space by using the <p>&nbsp;</p> tags

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.BannersAndPopups', new LiteralField('','<p>&nbsp;</p>'));
