Text after the field in a form

How can I add a text after the field in a group?

The text should remain in the line itself:

                            <field name="x_KundeHatBestelltUndGekauft" />
                            <field name="x_Brand" > My text 1
                            <field name="x_Brand2" > My text 2
                            <field name="x_Brand3" 
                            <field name="x_Brand4" >
                            <field name="x_Brand5" >

Thanks in advance!

Hello Temur, Thanks for the feedback. That brought me even further, but the distance is too big for the column. If you have other options to deposit the text directly after the field? Thanks in advance!

what about label?

 <group col="3">
        <field name="x_KundeHatBestelltUndGekauft" /> <label string="" nolabel="1" />
        <field name="x_Brand" /> <label  string="My text 1" nolabel="1" />
        <field name="x_Brand2" /> <label string="My text 2" nolabel="1" />

-also there is another option for first field(x_KundeHatBestelltUndGekauft), you can use  colspan="3" instead of empty label, because we made <group> width 3 with col="3" and as we haven't label for first field, it'll fit correctly group width with colspan="3"

        <field name="x_KundeHatBestelltUndGekauft" colspan="3"/> 


for your issue of distance, you can manipulate column count in group tag and simultaneously use colspan property in fields/labels. take in account that "field" need 2 column space by default. so for each line (for each field & label couple) you'll need to have sum of columns equal to col property of wrapper group tag. for example change above group as follows:

<group col="6">
<field name="x_KundeHatBestelltUndGekauft" /> <label string="" nolabel="1" colspan="4" />
<field name="x_Brand" /> <label string="My text 1" nolabel="1"  colspan="4" />
<field name="x_Brand2" /> <label string="My text 2" nolabel="1" colspan="4" />

fields width 2  +  label width (with colspan) 4 fits exactly group width 6.

you can use different numbers, adapt it to your requirements.
