    How to change position of Hover Text on Date Field that is blocking the field.

    Asked by yanaluae on March 30, 2015 at 05:00 PM

    If hover text is added to a date field, the hover text overlaps the last portion of the field for entry. Is there any way to change the placement of where the hover text is shown?

    I see what you meant when I test by adding the Hover Text on the form.


    If you were referring to your jotform http://www.jotformpro.com/form/50856274425964 , you can change the position of the hover text using this CSS code.

    #id_9 .form-description {

      right: -130px !important;


    The #id_9 was specific to that Date field on the form. If you want all Hover text to have same position, you can omit the field ID#  like this...

    .form-description {

      right: -130px !important;


    You can add the CSS code using the Form Designer


    The fixed version with the CSS code look like this
