    Can the text error message will appear in the boxes themselves? That would be very convenient and would also look better!


    The automatically generated many red "fireflies" distributed on a form is frightening:)

    I am afraid it is not possible to put the warning messages inside the textboxes. This needs an extensive modification of the JotForm Javascript library in order to achieve that.

    The only viable option for you is to change the positioning of the warning messages but not to position them on the textboxes.

    Please refer to this related thread on how to change the warning message positioning.

    If you need further help, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks
