    text field prefix

    Asked by advancemoves on March 01, 2012 at 09:37 AM

    can I add a fixed prefix in a text box

     

    Our customers will enter codes into text boxes such as JRC123456.  However, the JRC prefix will never change so I want to display it but not have them have to enter it.

    can I have a field prefix that is displayed but not editable by the user?

    Thanks

     

    Amazing product by the way!

    the html labels are in section Request Box Range and have the Label JRC.  Basically I will need to add an identical HTML label to every instance of the BOX ID text boxes o this form.

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You can align those two labels vertically center on your input box. Please inject this css code to your form:

    #cid_35, #cid_36{

    margin-top: 16px !important;

    }

    Preview: http://www.jotform.me/form/20644653963459?

    Of course you can also add your own css codes. Is this something you want to achieve?

    Please let us know if there's something I need to change or need any further assistance. Thank you so much!

    yes, this is something I need.  However, I am not that familiar with CSS code.  I would like to have these same html labels closer to the left hand side of the text box if possible, so the entered values look like they are part of the same string.  I need to add more of these HTML labels, if I add them all would you be so kind as to sort out the css code for me?

    @advancemoves, 

    If you need new CSS code for any new forms; just open a new thread for each one, providing the URL/ID of the form with a brief explanation of what you want customized and someone in the support team will provide you with the necessary CSS.
