    Dear Jot Form,

    I am developing a smart phone friendly website.  To have the website fit all smart phones I had to set the tables to 100%, which I do not see that option within Jot Form.  I just looked at a form I created using my BlackBerry and an Android.  The form fits perfect with the BlackBerry and 90% of the form shows on the Android without scrolling.  I concerned about the iPhones and I will try and find someone to look at the form for me today but, I wanted to see if Jot Form had any specifics on creating forms to use on smart phone websites.  I am using this code on some of my pages rather than setting the tables to 100%, which appears to work as well.

     

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=0">

     

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

     

    Warm regards,

    Hi Mike,

    JotForm-created forms take the full width (100%) available in the html element that contains them. In your webpage, the form is embedded inside a <td> element. That means the form cannot, in any way, go over your table's width.

    As long as your webpage fits smartphones screens, your form will also fit perfectly. Just make sure that the form's max width is lower than the width you have set for your table to avoid iframe scrollbars from appearing. (Note: 680 is just a sample width)

    Hope you find this helpful.

    Neil
