    Adding sub label to drop-down field over-rides field width

    Asked by bigbudgie on April 09, 2017 at 08:15 AM


    When i add a sub-label to the drop-down list field it shortens the width of the field to the length of the sub label.

    Can this be over ridden so it retains the width I have set in the field properties.


    Many thanks

    There is some CSS conflict. You may add the next CSS in order to set a minimal width for dropdowns within your form.

    [data-type="control_dropdown"] .form-dropdown {
    min-width: 270px;

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
