    How can I increase the field width in a configuration list using CSS?

    Asked by MonicaBailey on October 16, 2014 at 05:11 PM

    This is my fields configuration:

    Name: textbox

    Fee Amount: textbox

    The tool at the top for the width does not seem to be changing my field width. I need the name field to be longer than the amount field.


    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Monica,

    I believe that I found the jotform that you wanted to apply this change to.

    Now to do this we will need to add some CSS to the Configurable list widget:

    td.col1 {
        min-width: 170px;
    td.col1 > input {
        width: 95%;

    You can see it in action here http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42886545035966

    and clone to your account if you want to.

    Now to add that CSS code to your Configurable list widget, please click on the Wand icon which will open the wizard.

    Now scroll down and paste the CSS in the designated field and click on Finish.

    That is it, click to preview the jotform and see how it looks.

    Do let us know if you have any further questions.

    Best Regards,
