A form we've created has $ amounts right justified. What's best practice for including a "clear field" control within the field?

Current thinking is that the hover state pushes the $ amount to the left, revealing an "X" control.

Another option is to put the "X" on the left, which would have the benefit of not making the $ amount jump left every time you hover.


  • Not a solution, but an anecdote: I know of one program (Clementine music player) that uses a left-aligned "clear field" function, and I always feel the field (rather, the icon) looks strange. It took me a while until I tried it. – virtualnobi Feb 22 '17 at 17:42
  • That's our thinking as well. It would seem strange. – David Riedy Feb 22 '17 at 18:54
  • May you share the screen of your application? – MaximOrlovsky Feb 23 '17 at 0:04
