    Is it possible to change the appearance of the matrix?

    Asked by Adam  on August 14, 2015 at 10:31 AM

    When changing the layout theme of the form, the matrix stays the same. Is it possible to change the appearance of the matrix to a different design or is it set to the default design?

    It is possible to change matrix table appearance by Injecting Custom CSS. I have made demo form where I changed background color of matrix headers, columns and matrix values by injecting this CSS code:

    .form-matrix-row-headers {

        background-color : #00ff4f;

    }

    .form-matrix-values {

        background-color : #efff00;

    }

    .form-matrix-column-headers.form-matrix-column_0, .form-matrix-column-headers.form-matrix-column_1, .form-matrix-column-headers.form-matrix-column_2, .form-matrix-column-headers.form-matrix-column_3 {

        background-color : #6DD0F2;

    I added this code inside of Form Designer CSS.

    Here is my demo form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/52255464842963? 

    If you are unable to change appearance of the your matrix table, please provide us ID of your form and explain in more details what exact changes you want to make on your form.
