    How can I make my matrix dynamique not expand?

    Asked by duongau on February 06, 2014 at 02:51 PM

    I'm having trouble making my matrix not expand after hitting the add row button. If you look on the 6th tab, and just click add row a few times without entering any information. You will notice the matrix expanding to fit the header. Is there a way from keeping that from happening? It makes the form look really ugly.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The matrix dynamique field is expected to behave that way.

    The 'Add Row' should only be clicked when they want an additional row after they have filled ans saved the one they are working on.

    It alows someone to add more rows to their responses. Ideally, it should have one row when they see it, but they have the option of adding a new row - clicking on edit - filling out their responses - then saving

    Unless you are filling out the form, there is no need to click on the 'Add Row' button - your form users should be the ones to do that.

    I'm not sure if this helps, please let us know.

    Can you click the add row button like 6 times? You'll see tha you need to scroll side ways until a certain point to see the add row button. I want the header not to expand at all.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    My apologies, I see the problem now - The field keeps getting wider and wider. 

    I have escalated the issue to our developers.

    Thank you for your patience as we deliberate.

    We sincerely apologize for the (very) delayed notification. 

    The widget width should not expand when new rows are added - please test with this form  - http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51121153150941

    Please let us know if you have further difficulty.
