    How can I customize the length and width of a form?

    Asked by AEN1982 on March 25, 2012 at 07:27 PM

    Hello there I'm having similar issues with trying to customize a 'Contact Me' form I'm trying to make and use in my iWeb site.

    I would like to make a form that fits in a 372(w)x466(h)px area. Using the iFrame option that "anartwork" mentioned, lets me modify both of these options (width might say '100%', just changed it to '372px' [see screenshot]). There's just one problem, I end up getting a 'scrolling' effect because I've added a Title and Captcha option to the form.

    I have no problem loosing the Title area (and have dropped it); but I still get a scrolling effect from the form because of the captcha and submit areas, I'm not willing to loose these areas.

    Is there any way we can have the Jotform Builder; build a form based on exact pixel height/width, where the form then fills in the appropriate areas with content based on the pixel measurements instead of the standard sizes that JotForm uses? Is there a way to edit both the height and width of each content area of the JotForms?

    Is this something that is only part of a 'premium' membership?

    Hi there,

    The reason why you have that scrollbars is because your form's height and width is greater than your form container (which is 372px by 466px). What you need to do here is to reduce or compress your form fields in order to achieved 466px height or lower than that. I have cloned your form and compressed the form fields. Please clone this form back and test it on your website, see if this help.
