    I would like to format some text boxes with a dollar sign at the front and .00 at the end?

    Asked by menstrom on April 13, 2016 at 09:30 AM

    I would like to format some text boxes to look like this on the screen (with a dollar sign ahead of the box and ".00" at the back of the box):

    Is this possible to do?

     

    Thanks,

    Do you have a form with that field already? It would be best to share us the working form you have, I do see that you have a form titled "2016-2017 Financial Aid Application" that is shared to you.

    I cloned that form and added the change using a text box. Here's a cloned form: https://form.jotform.com/61034601137948. You can clone my form using this link: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL 

    This is how it looks like:

     

    You can find the custom CSS code I added in the Form Designer Tool. You can re-position the text box to any part of your form. I just added it at the top for easy viewing.
