    text field input width on forms

    Asked by UJAFederation on November 28, 2013 at 02:41 PM


    Just working on a 'Matrix' form.

    I've customized the size of the columns as well as the pixel width of the form itself.

    However, I cannot seem to increase the size of the text field input width container at all.

    This has resulted in an odd looking input box which appears to only accept very short answers.

    Can this be adjusted?

    There are ways to customize each form element to respond to the container. This may involve adding custom CSS for each element in adjusting the style properties and values. 

    Please share the url to the form so that it can be examined for a possible solution tailored for your need.

    I have checked the form, and it looks like that you followed the Titus's advise and adjusted the Matrix text boxes with custom CSS. Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance on this.
