scaffold default form layout

Hello
Newbie to rails .....
When I use logic .. rails generate scaffold Test name:string date:date
etc
the default layout puts boxes top down.

name:
date:
etc
How can I change the position of these boxes should I want to? - what if
I want date field 2cm to the right or left

Regards

I suggest working right through a good tutorial such as
railstutorial.org (which is free to use online). That will show you
the basics of Rails.

To answer your question however you just have to edit the erb files in
app/views/tests. You may have to provide appropriate CSS also of
course. But do the tutorial first.

Note however that it is not a good idea to have a model called Test, I
think you may run into problems with test being a reserved word.

Really, do the tutorial first. Otherwise you will later look back on
these questions and be embarrassed.
