    How can I control the appearance of a specific field type using css?

    Asked by teachlearngrow on January 15, 2016 at 08:54 AM

    I have been using CSS to give my text fields a width of 1/2 of the sub-label-container's width using:


    .form-textbox {

        width : 50%;  



    This works well for me and I still want that affect for those fields, however I have noticed that the date/time field also uses text boxes assigned the same class and their width is affected as well.

    Is there a way I can specify a different width for specifically the date/time text boxes, so that I can fit them all onto the same line? I thought maybe each box would be given an id depending on the type of field it's a part of but I haven't been able to find any information about that or whether I am able to add my own. 


    Thanks in advance for any help,

    Thank you for your update.

    Alternatively, this is possible to double-click on a field input wile in a CSS editor in order to select it.

    We also have some CSS examples related to the fields positioning and the bottom of the next guide.
