    Can I expand the size of the matrix without getting into HTML coding?

    Asked by Jmullen on April 25, 2014 at 12:41 PM

    Please see the attached screenshot of a portion of my form.  The top part of the screenshot is a graphic.  The bottom part is the actual matrix.


    I would like to expand the size of the matrix to match the size of the top part.


    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.  I'm not an HTML programmer, but if that is what is needed, I'll find someone wit those skills.  And THANKS for JotForm ... G R E A T product!!

    Thank you for the kind words.

    You may not need a programmer for this:

    You need to inject CSS code to your form to adjust the matrix width.

    To do that - please use this guide

    Here is the CSS that you will inject in your form to adjust the matrix width - just copy it and paste it as directed in the guide above:

    /*Force the matrix to adjust to the width of the image*/

    .form-matrix-table {
    width: 517px!important;

    /*Correct the Row Header Width*/

    .form-matrix-row-headers, .form-matrix-column-headers {
    width: 35px;
    /*Correct the matrix input box row*/

    input.form-textbox {
    width: 85%;

    Let us know if this helps

    Hi Jmullen, 

    You can do that injecting some CSS, so you don't need to get into HTML.

    You can open the "inject css area" following "Setup & Embed" -> "Preferences" -> "Form Styles" -> "Inject Custom CSS". Please paste this code below into area.

    .form-matrix-table { width: 571px; }

    .form-matrix-row-headers { width: 5%; }

    .form-matrix-values { width: 19%; }
