    drop down fields move around

    Asked by glenpoolps on March 04, 2016 at 04:48 PM

    I have a lengthy form.  On pages that look like this.... (page 5 and 6 for example). If the user clicks the header or any part of the element other than the drop down list, the drop down element moves down to the next line until a option has been selected.


    More specifically, if the user clicks "call adult 2*" before the make a selection in "adult 2 is the...*" then the field "call adult 1*" jumps to the line below.  Once an option from the drop down list is selected, the element "call adult 2*" has been selected, the element returns to it's correct position.


    How do I prevent this or make the "call adult 2" element stay in place?  I tried to figure out how to set the right position but am not sure which position type to use (static, fixed....).

    It is easy, just move the first field on every row to a new line if you want it to stay on the next line. This is to ensure that there is a boundary between the rows and the fields will not move. To do that, just right-click the field then move to a new line.

    Hope this helps!
