    Multiple: Align text input, create link to site page

    Asked by Jay on January 29, 2013 at 06:37 AM

    I have an existing form that collects information about custom printing on Ribbon fabric.


    I need certain field input to be center aligned -- meaning I need the user entry to be center aligned (not the field itself). How do I create a multi or single line text input field with center alignment?



    When a user is asked for a ribbon color, I need to show the ribbon color catalog. I would like to place a button next to a regular text input field that when pressed opens a window and shows our ribbon catalog --- or other reference information from our site --- Is that possible? If so, how?



    Can the HTML field (like this one that I am typing this message into) be customized. For instance, I would like to include the field on a form, but trim away some of the options -- like links, etc. What I basically want is the ability for a user to select a font and any font dress-up, but no picture, no links, no straight HTML coding. And I would like to force Center Alignment. Is that possible?


    Thank you!

    First off, I recommend that you at least create a JotForm account -- this will enable us to provide support better and the same time will enable you keep track of everything since you have an official account. 

    Now to your inquiries.


    You can use injected CSS codes to text-align:center the input.

    #input_1{text-align: center;}



    You can use the Free Text(HTML) field to put a reference link that targets to a new window. You can substitute the link for an image button instead if that is what you are after. In the Free text(html). there is a link tool (just like this message editor)


    I am sorry, but the Free Text (HTML) field is just that -- a text field. If you put an input field within it, it will not be recognize by the system as an input field.-- it will simply treat it as a text. Some users tried doing this, (i.e. put a Name field within free text field) -- it ended up not receiving the data. What you will get instead is just the html field label.

    You cannot also insert scripts or CSS within the free text html-- it will only be parsed and erased.

    Hope this help. Please contact us again anytime if you have further inquiry.
