    Hi again,

    I am trying to create a table where the applicants can input data like this: 

    Which species and varieties will you plant? (please use additional sheet if required)

    No

    Species

    Variety

    For example

    3

    Apples

    Stirling Castle

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    I have created an html table but unfortunately it doesn't allow data to be input so will habe to use a matrix. which I have also created. I read a post where you suggest to insert CSS? how can I do that?

    Also how can I have a matrix question tagged as must answer, but when only one asnwer is required?

    Many thanks

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can check this article to know where to inject custom CSS code. For example, you can inject the following code to increase the size of text box inputs in Matrix.

    .form-matrix-values .form-textbox {
    width: 150px;

    Also how can I have a matrix question tagged as must answer, but when only one asnwer is required?

    Unfortunately, we do not have such type of validation.

    However, if you want to remove validation only for some inputs, we can provide a workaround with a little modified form source code.

    Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Thanks that's great!

    If my cell is 150px the applicant can input a max of 18 characters, am I right? if so, how could I have a cell that shows as 150px on size but allows more than 18 characters?

    Thanks

    Hello Amparo

    There is no restriction on the number of characters to be input, the only thing is that they might not be visualized on the form

    Regards
