    When using a matrix with text box as the input type, can I increase the width of the text box?

    Any chance this would be supported any time soon. Have client waiting for a form. This is looking like a deal breaker :(

    Try this:

    1) Get Full Form Source Code:

     

    On the Form Builder:

    1.1. Open "Setup & Share" tab on toolbar,

    1.2. Click on "Share Form"

    1.3. Click on "Advanced Options"

    1.4. Click on "Full Source Code".

    2. Copy it to your favorite HTML Editor, find the textbox fields and increase their sizes manually.

    Thanks, I was aware that it was an option.
    But, I want them to be able to log in to JotForm and configure stuff as they go along (like, add/remove items from the drop downs). That's primarily why I'm using a SaaS form builder: Otherwise, I'd have to build the CMS part of it too  :)

    Maybe if there was an option to serve our CSS along with the form (as its inside an IFrame). Then I can set the width using CSS, perhaps.

    I think you can use CSS to edit the size or use JavaScript to get the element and change its size. It should be possible. Give it a try if you are familiar with CSS/JavaScript.

    Yep familiar with both. But, since the form's inside an IFrame, putting the CSS on the hosting page doesn't help. And I think, javascript on the host page will be blocked from accessing the form elements too, as it'll be a case of cross site scripting.

    Please let me know if I misunderstood or if there's a workaround.

    If you use the full source code instead of the javascript/iframe code, you can edit the CSS. Described how to get the full source code on my post above.
