    How to increase the field length for name and date/time

    Asked by kevinpclarke on June 10, 2015 at 09:47 AM

    Dear Support,

    Apologises for these questions. I think I'm getting a better handle on it now. It is different form Forms Central that is all.

    I'm trying to increase the field lengths for the first name, last name and date fields, I notice on some of the others you can do this in the properties, but there does not seem to be a setting in the properties for these two ?

    Thanks for your help

    Welcome aboard Kevin!
    Our support team is here to assist you on your efforts, so feel free to drop us a line whenever needed.

    You can go to form Designer > CSS > double click the field and then add the width inside the brackets:

    So it will look like:

    #first_1, #last_1 {

        width : 120px;


    Let us know if we can assist you further
