    Custom CSS CODE: @ symbol will be parsed as // symbol, preventing people to set specific rules

    Asked by markashton on October 29, 2012 at 07:33 AM

    Hi,

    Further to this ... http://www.jotform.com/answers/94438-How-to-use-inject-CSS-to-remove-hover-popups-in-mobile-environment-only

     

    can you advise me as to whether it is possible to add media query CSS stuff to  the inject CSS area so as to be able to control display of your jotforms on different devices.

    If not ... are  there any plans ... many thanks

    Please don't advise that they your forms are optimised for mobile display ... they aren't ... you do make alignment go top and have some attributes like "tel" and stuff but that's  the tip of the ice berg.

    Thank you for your feedback!

    At this moment, to use more advanced CSS on your form, you can download the full source code of your form, then modify sources_folder\css\styles\form.css file, and use that modified stylesheet file for your form.

    Be assured that our dev team works continuosly to improve our products and services and we value your input.

    Let us know if this helps!

    Hi,

    As we move into a mobile world and all my form stuff now focuses on mobile data capture ... can you advise me as to whether it is possible to add media query CSS stuff to  the inject CSS area so as to be able to control display of your jotforms on different devices.

    Do you think it would be a worthy addition? Thanks

    Hi Mark,

    I agree, it would be useful if the @ symbol doesnt default to // when injecting custom CSS, so that you customize forms for particular devices. 

    I will forward a request to the developers to see if we can get that changed.

    Hi Mark,

    Sorry but no, we do not have updates about it yet. I have informed the developer who is assigned to this, hopefully he'd be able to find a convenient time to reply here. We'll let you know right away if we have something to report.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Hi there,

    What did that developer say Darktech? Let's all think about this for a second ... Jotform will be able to display the same form in totally different environments that adapt to this environment as needed.

    Why a good idea? Massively exapnds the reach of a singhle jotform and keeps Jotform up to date with responsive websites.

    Can you advise Aytekin on the points I have made here, i.e. should jotform cater for websites of the new age?

    Thanks, Mark

    Hi Mark,

    The feature request is in there and is marked as important by Aytekin.

    We will most likely see the modification at some point soon.

    I am sure you are well aware that we get 1000s of feature requests, so its unrealistic to expect all them implemented within weeks.

    I recognise that ... but the technique of being persistent can often pay dividends too ;-)

    Hi Mark, here are some updates:  Currently, we're still studying some implications and restrictions as there have been articles that states that CSS 'at-rules' (@) are potentially harmful. But we do would like to put a consideration so we're studying further.

    if you can share with us a bit more information, can you tell us the specific rule you'd be wanting to use on your form so we can make a thorough research and have it implemented sooner?

    Thanks.

    Liyam,

    Media queries are one of the fundamental building blocks of the future web?

    Check this: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-mediaqueries/

    I don't have a specific rule in mind ... just the ability to be able to control how forms display on different devices.

    Thanks

    Mark,

    That explains it, thanks for the additional details.

    We haven't heard any updates from our dev team today but we've pushed every details we've gathered from you and from the other supports that are probably favorable to this. Some @ functions may affect the form perfomances and some are safe, I believed @media would be possible.

    We ask for your patience as it may take a while before this can be finally cleared. Thanks again!

    This issue is now resolved. You can now use at-sign "@" in the Custom Inject CSS.
