    Blocking out a box on a matrix field

    Asked by ICFforms on July 23, 2014 at 10:29 AM

    Hello there!

     

    I am not sure if this is possible, but we are using the matrix field for one of applications.  It looks clean and lays the data out nicely.

     

    I have uploaded a screenshot of what we would like to see on the matrix and I am not sure how to make that happen.  Do you know if there is a possibility to make this happen?

     

    Thank you,

    Emily - ICF

    Hi Emily,

    That's possible by injecting custom CSS codes to your form. You can use the following to remove that specific field on the matrix table.

    th + td > input[name="q6_cceLog[2][]"] {

    display: none;

    }

    @ICFforms 

    The code is form field specific. Anyway, use the following for your live form.

    th + td > input[name="q185_input185[2][]"] {

    display: none;

    }

    If you need anything else, let us know.

    Regards!
