    I am working on a form on which I would like to have an html box fixed to the side. It needs more work on the look, but is in the correct place on a PC, however it overlays the form on a mobile.

    How can I get it to stay in the normal place on a phone.

    Hello,

    To be able to make your form responsive you need to media queries css,

    I cloned your form and edited the media queries css here is the final screenshot

    Here is the css code:

    /*Smallest screen*/
    @media (max-width: 480px){

    #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right : 15px;
        bottom :380px;
        width : 180px!important;
    }
    }
    /* Tilted Smallest screen*/
    @media (min-width:481px) and (max-width:600px){
        #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right :10px;
        bottom :70px;
        width : 300px!important;
       
      
    }
    }

    /*medium screen*/
    @media (min-width: 601px) and (max-width:960px){
      #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right :150px;
        bottom :880px;
        width : 180px!important;
       
    }
    }

    /*Tilted medium screen*/
    @media (min-width: 961px) and (max-width:1290px){
       #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right :150px;
        bottom :500px;
        width : 180px!important;

    }
    }

    /*Desktop view*/
    @media (min-width:1291px){
        #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right :150px;
        bottom :300px;
        width : 180px!important;

    }
    }

    Hi,

    You can adjust the table with the media queries I have given to suit your needs.

    Here is the css code:

    /*Smallest screen*/
    @media (max-width: 480px){

    #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right : 15px;
        bottom :380px;
        width : 180px!important;
    }
    }
    /* Tilted Smallest screen*/
    @media (min-width:481px) and (max-width:600px){
        #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right :10px;
        bottom :70px;
        width : 300px!important;
       
      
    }
    }

    /*medium screen*/
    @media (min-width: 601px) and (max-width:960px){
      #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right :150px;
        bottom :880px;
        width : 180px!important;
       
    }
    }

    /*Tilted medium screen*/
    @media (min-width: 961px) and (max-width:1290px){
       #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right :150px;
        bottom :500px;
        width : 180px!important;

    }
    }

    /*Desktop view*/
    @media (min-width:1291px){
        #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right :150px;
        bottom :300px;
        width : 180px!important;

    }
    }

    Hello beatsahead,

    And I am very sorry if the information I have given did not helped you.

    Correct me if I am wrong, you dont want the table to be fixed with the scrolling but it to be fixed and stay at the top?

    If so, the css woulde be:

    position:absolute;

    Here is the css code:


    @media (max-width: 480px){

    #text_263 {
        position : absolute;
        right : 1px;
        bottom :1900px;
        width : 180px!important;
       
    }
    }
    @media (min-width:481px) and (max-width:600px){
        #text_263 {
        position : absolute;
        right :20px;
        bottom :1550px;
        width : 300px!important;
       
      
    }
    }
    @media (min-width: 601px) and (max-width:960px){
      #text_263 {
        position : absolute;
        right :150px;
        bottom :1550px;
        width : 180px!important;
       
    }
    }
    @media (min-width: 961px) and (max-width:1290px){
       #text_263 {
        position : absolute;
        right :90px;
        bottom :1550px;
        width : 180px!important;

    }
    }
    @media (min-width:1291px){
        #text_263 {
        position : absolute;
        right :90px;
        bottom :1550px;
        width : 180px!important;

    }
    }

    To enable the position to be fixed on a pc you must change your css: position:fixed;

    /*Desktop view*/
    @media (min-width:1291px){
        #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
        right :150px;
        bottom :300px;
        width : 180px!important;

    }
    }


    then to make the table stay at the top in mobile view  position:absolute;

    Here is the css code:



    @media (max-width: 480px){

    #text_263 {
        position : absolute;
        right : 1px;
        bottom :1900px;
        width : 180px!important;
       
    }
    }
    @media (min-width:481px) and (max-width:600px){
        #text_263 {
        position : absolute;
        right :20px;
        bottom :1550px;
        width : 300px!important;
       
      
    }
    }
    @media (min-width: 601px) and (max-width:960px){
      #text_263 {
        position : absolute;
        right :150px;
        bottom :1550px;
        width : 180px!important;
       
    }
    }
    @media (min-width: 961px) and (max-width:1290px){
       #text_263 {
        position : absolute;
        right :90px;
        bottom :1550px;
        width : 180px!important;

    }
    }

    That's not it. I'm having trouble explaining. I want the floating field on a PC or large screen, but I don't need to see it at all on a smaller screen.

    I'm terribly sorry beatsahead for the misunderstanding.

    You just wanted to make the table hide when it is on mobile so that your form can be seen properly correct?

    45019_2.gif

    To able to do that, just change position:fixed; then add margin-left:290px;

    @media (max-width: 480px){
     
    #text_263 {
        position : fixed;
       margin-left:290px;
        bottom :300px;
        width : 180px!important;
      
    }
    }

    You can adjust this numbers using the media queries depending on the screen.

    Here is the mobile queries css.

    /*For small devices*/

    @media (max-width: 480px){

    }

    /*side small devices*/
    @media (min-width:481px) and (max-width:600px){
     

    }

    /*medium devices*/
    @media (min-width: 601px) and (max-width:960px){
     
    }

    /*side medium devices*/
    @media (min-width: 961px) and (max-width:1290px){
     
    }

    /*Large Screen*/
    @media (min-width:1291px){

    }

    I hope this information helps you, again my apologies.

    Regards.
