    How to correct the width on birth date?

    Asked by britishdeafassociation on February 05, 2015 at 01:33 PM

    Hi, see screen shot image below...

    ...as you can see the drop down menu for day, month and year are not in correct width. Day is too wide and the month is too narrow as doesn't show full "April" when selected.  Same for the year - only show "19" rather than "1970".

    How can I adjust the width with this birth date widget please?  I have tried searching for similar question on this forum with no luck.

    Let me know, thanks.

    Hello Lyndon,

    Please inject the following CSS code to your JotForm by following the guide below : 


    #cid_18  {

    max-width: 250px !important;


    #cid_18 .form-sub-label-container:first-child {

    width : 50px !important;


    #cid_18 .form-sub-label-container:nth-child(2) {

    width : 100px;


    #input_18_day {

    width: 50px;


    #input_18_month {

    width: 100px;


    #input_18_year {

    width: 70px;


    By adding the code to your JotForm, the date should be displayed as shown in the image below :
