    The pre-fab address field chooses an arbitrary size/width that rarely matches the rest of my form. No way to resize this field, so it stands out as looking off-kilter.

    Please make it possible to specify a width. Ideally allow selecting a width that will match other fields that have the same width setting (i.e. "50" width address field will match a "50" width text box) so a form can look clean and professional.

    Hi,

    If I understand correctly, you want the textbox  field to have same px width as to those of the full address field. (i.e the image below)

    You can use CSS codes to customize the width px size of each field. In my test form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/30738035220949

    I use this CSS codes for the textbox to match the width of the address line textbox of full address field.

    #input_4{

    width: 310px;

    }

     

    Please inform us if this is not what you meant.

    Thanks.

    Hi - your example accomplishes what I was looking for, yes. All the right edges line up nice and neat.

    I guess the meat of my request is to give Address fields (and all other fields, for that matter) a consistent way to specify a width so it's easy to make them line up using the existing toolbar in the Form Builder. I understand the CSS approach... it's just that you already have width related controls for other field types, so wny not this one? And, as mentioned in my other thread, entering a number for width should produce the same width regardless of field type.

    I agree with you on the need to have the means to actually set the width of the input fields.

    And the size property should have been that means(if possible). Although, the via CSS methods is already possible to set the width in px, it will be neat if the existing size property can already do this.

    As mentioned on the other post, I already created a ticket about this.

    You will be informed when updates on the request feature ticket are available via this thread
