How can we create a responsive form?Asked by techaxess on May 16, 2012 at 09:04 PM
We have a responsive website wherein it changes automatically from whatever platform it is visited, for example IPAD, Android Phone, or a Computer.
We would like the form to change size automatically when it is visited on a different browser or if it uses mobile.
Our forms are already capable to be viewed either on a mobile browser or computer browser.
We ussually suggest people to embed their form's code using the iframe method to prevent possible issues with certain mobile browsers
The form renders on mobile, however, it is not responsive. Is there a method to making jotforms responsive so they are optimized for viewing on various devices?
As stated above by our Forum Manager our Forms are already optimized for the most part. The trouble that goes beyond that I think resides in the setup of the form depending on what all you have in it, how long it is and also if it is embedded on a website if one is owned. And because of that it's still going to have slight limitations even on todays smartphones and mobile devices. So to combat this Third-Party App Developers have created additional mobile browsers which can zoom in and out more than the stock browser or even switch between Mobile and Desktop Modes to assist and create more responsiveness when visiting forms, websites, etc,.
Additionally you can use custom coding embedded onto a website to try to make it detect and fit the size of a mobile device. There are also services available outside of jotform that do this for you as well.
It has been for a while that this question has been answered but I also would like to add a link to this because now we do have widgets just for creating responsive forms.
Have a great day
