    CKEditor Widget: Ability to display the widget properly in mobile devices.

    Asked by trapeezy on February 25, 2017 at 05:12 PM

    Hey there, I need to make the CKEditor on my form responsive like the rest of the form output from JotForm. How is this possible? Or I guess which CSS styles do I input to make this possible...

    Please help!!


    P.S. - I have fused together the source output from your site into mine, so if you are asking if my CSS or JS is breaking the responsive qualities of the editor, it's not because on my form output from you guys hosting on JotForm it isn't working either - https://form.jotform.com/70515693865264 (put in mobile view to see)

    Since it's a widget you cannot affect the elements inside it since it's loaded within an iFrame injecting code to the form, I can see the widget currently does not allow to submit any CSS code since there's not widget's wizard. 

    I cannot find a way to resolve the current issue with the height in mobile devices, which seems to be affecting the widget. 

    I will forward this thread to our second level so our developers may apply some code in the widget's source so it displays properly in mobile devices. 

    We will let you know as soon as we get any update regarding this.

    Hello Nick,

    While a ticket has already been submitted to the development team on the widget, you can try making use of the rich text format of the regular text area field which you can have a better control on its width

    Simply get the Long Text Entry field and then go to Properties > Options > Rich Text

    Feel free to let us know if you have more questions.

    Is there any update to the CKEditor issue here?
    I would much rather use that one because I dont want users to be able to submit an image through the Rich Text editor...any word on making the plugin responsive?

    Unfortunately, we have not received any update regarding this, but I think there's a way to display the widget properly in mobile devices, what I've noticed is that the widget fits properly the screen, but the height does not seem enough. 

    You could try injecting this code to the form: 

    @media only screen and (max-device-width: 550px){


    height: 500px !important;




    You can see the result on this form: https://form.jotform.com/70558056974972 

    Hope this helps.
