    Create the size of a light box to be set as a percentage?

    Asked by 2ezy on November 13, 2013 at 04:48 AM

    Carried over from previous thread.I guess I asked the question because I didn't want mobile phone or tablet users to be filling in a lightbox form and accidentally touch their screen outside the box and close it.

    So if there is some limitations on creating a % size what about having it so the lightbox can't be closed unless the submit button is hit or the cross button puished.

    I don't have a URL as I am just seeing what is posible with this sort of form.

    Thanks Mark

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for posting a new thread. I'm not really sure if there was an available workaround not to close the lightbox window when you click outside the window. 

    As for the mobile view, you can add a custom CSS codes to your page that would control the Lightbox Form. An example workaround can be found here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/254813. We can further assist you about this matter if we can see the live form embedded to a page.

    Thanks
