    You can modify the style of the fields using injected custom CSS code in the Configurable List Widget.

    If you check the guide How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget , how to customize the List Looks was also mentioned.


    In the sample form http://form.myjotform.com/form/41112368425549  to increase the height of the text input, you can use CSS code like this


    input[type=text] {

    height: 50px;


    the textbox will then have 50px height


    Tell us which of your form you need to modify the style and we will assist you on it.

    Please try the CSS only like this

    textarea {

    width: 100px;

    height: 500px;



    The result should look like this


    Inform us if you need more help.

    I cannot change the widht of a column in a configurable list (type : number). It seems only possible to change the height, but changing the width doesn't work!!
