    How can I customize the appearance of a Matrix field?

    Asked by lucianobtm on May 21, 2015 at 09:24 AM


    I need to insert a fillable table for repliers to indicate information about hotel stays for a convention. Here's the form I intend to input into JotForm, but I'm having such a hard time doing it I preferred to call out for your assistance.

    Could you send me the CSS code so that I can add it to the widget (Spreadsheet)? I attached a sample of the form I need to build in JotForm.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've created a cloned version of your form and noticed that you had a matrix field and a spreadsheet widget in your form.

    So, I've injected the CSS code below to make the matrix field look in a similar way as showed in the screenshot.

    .form-textbox { width: 96%; margin: 0; }
    .form-matrix-column-headers { background-color: #548033 !important; color: #FFF !important;}
    .form-matrix-row-headers { background-color: #C2DFA0 !important; }
    .form-matrix-values { padding: 0; }

    The result would be the following:
