    Hint example telephone

    Asked by vincentcastonguay on September 15, 2011 at 09:41 PM

    Hi !

    Is there a way to add a "Hint Example" (like for the email) to a telephone label ? I tried to add it manually while pasting it in iWeb but without success. I'd like to make sure users enter their telephone number in a proper way.

    Thanks

    Vince

    Hi Vince,

    First of all, thank you for using JotForm.

    You can do that by obtaining the form's full source code and try pasting this one below before the head tag:

    <script type="text/javascript">
     JotForm.init(function() {
     $('ID FOR AREA FIELD').hint('TYPE ANY EXAMPLE HERE');
     $('ID FOR PHONE FIELD').hint('
    TYPE ANY EXAMPLE HERE'); });
    </script>

    The red ones indicate the words that are to be changed. This should solve your issue. 

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us again so that we can provide further assistance regarding your problem.
