    Full Name Field: Replace sublabels with placeholders

    Asked by MartinBoyle on October 25, 2014 at 08:02 AM
    2. The "First & Last Name" field, for your information, is from Jotforms Quick Tools selection. Is it possible to a) Make both of these boxes the same width? b) Put them on the same alignment as the textboxes throughout the rest of the form, and c) remove the "first name" and "last name" text below the boxes, instead moving it to inside the textboxes themselves?

    Hi Martin,

    You can achieve that by injecting this custom css code.

    /* Same width for the first and last name field */

    #first_23, #last_23 { width: 124px; }

    /* Removing the first and last name sub-label */

    #sublabel_first, #sublabel_last { display: none; }

    Unfortunately, placeholders work by using the Hint Example. Since you used the quick tools, there is no options to put Hint Example on it. You cannot put placeholder text just by through css codes only. If you want to put the text inside the box, you will use the regular form tools and not the one from quick tools. After that you can just use the Hint Example and that will serve as the placeholder.


    Hope this helps. Thank you.
