    How to have a table with some specific column widths?

    Asked by Fireconsultingltd on February 20, 2017 at 07:05 AM

    Hello to you,

    I have a table where the 


    The Description needs to be wide, with capacity to expand downwards with more content. I have looked at the FQA which has coding, but can't seem to find the area within the table matrix settings, to input the code.

    I have tried the widget, but that doesn't seem to work very well.

    Please can you help. Thank you in advance.

    Hello Aidan,

    This is the form link, the table features towards the end. 


    I have used a widget, is there anything more fitting for the task in your opinion?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi again Cerrie,

    I examined the form and I can see that you meant the "Definition of priorities (where applicable)" section.

    Please note that picking the Configurable List widget was a very good choice in my humble opinion, as it allows you to have more control over the table fields, their types, validation on them and so on.

    We also have a detailed guide on setting up the Configurable List widget, just in case you didn't come across it yet, here: https://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget

    The form as it is now looks good to me, but still, is there anything you would like to change about that section? We are here to assist you with any styling needed. Thank you.

    Can I ask another question of you please. The form is quite long and will change in size depending on content. I know how to embed the page numbers, and how to print them on the PDF. My problem is, my form will grow and shrink. Do I have to add hard page breaks or is there something I could use that is 'responsive'?

    Thank you in advance Aidan, Cerrie
