    How can I expand the textboxes in the matrix field when using the regular textbox input?

    Asked by Nahjeehw on January 11, 2017 at 11:57 AM

    when having a numeric text box I can only enter numbers, if I switch to a regular text box the cells gets smaller and I am unable to see all of the letter I type in

    I am also having a issue with the currency option. I suspected that by using the currency option it would insert the dollar sign ($) when I enter numbers but I doesn't.

    After changing the input type, inject the following custom CSS codes to your form:

    .form-matrix-values>.form-textbox {

        width: 100% !important;


    This should fix your problem. Here's our guide to inject: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    By the way, the currency type means you can just input a currency value, not any currency sign. Inputting the symbol will give you an error when currency is selected.
