    Adjust textarea width

    Asked by integrityima on September 25, 2013 at 07:21 PM

    I have set my form width to 600px and my comment text area to 500px, but the comment text area will not adjust online. Can you help?

    This is very easy to do.

    1. Open to edit your form.
    2. Select Form Style
    3. Select the Data box you wish to adjust
    4. Select Label Width.  This will increase or decrease the white space between the lable Name the data box.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks for the reply. This is exactly what I have done but it does not change the width online.

    Hmmm, the theory sounds good, that's what I did, it just doesn't affect the width online.

    Hi,

    Can you please take a look at the image bellow if that is what you want to achieve on your form?

    If yes, inject this custom css into your form.

    #input_17.form-textarea {

    width: 574px;

    height: 135px;

    }

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Thank you!
