    Question (Label of your question) in the Properties....Frustrating....Please Fix

    Asked by guelphlittletheatre on July 25, 2011 at 02:07 AM

    I am attempting to create the illusion of a complex matrix of different field types (eg. pulldowns, text, checkboxes in different columns). None of these fields have Question text in them because I create labels at the top of each column. The only way to do this for each field is to go into the Properties, hilight the Question text, delete it, and save. It can't be done through the user interface. An additional problem with this is that if I go edit another form and then come back to edit the original form, all these Questions have been filled with "..." or "Click to enter text". I have to go through the whole process again. It is creating a lot of frustration as I try to make this great product do just a little more than it appears capable of. Help!

    Hi guelphlittletheatre,

    Have you tried injecting this CSS code into your form?

    label {
        visibility: hidden;

    Kindly advise if it works for you or not so that we can further assist you. Thank you for your patience on this matter.

    Have a great week ahead!

        That css certainly works to hide all labels. Of course that isn't what I want since I have other items on the form where I need the labels to be visible.

    Thanks guelphlittletheatre, correct indeed.

    I believe this thread stems out of this other thread - http://www.jotform.com/answers/22588-I-deleted-labels-of-your-question-but-when-I-put-it-into-my-website-they-are-shown- . Sorry but there is no update yet regarding this topic. i hope the workaround presented there, albeit less straightforward, should somehow work for you for now.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter. We'd appreciate it also if you refer to the original thread for future updates or follow ups. Once updates are available, we'll definitely let you know.
