    Can the text field be coded to get closer to the above field to look more like subtext?

    Asked by Benflips on July 10, 2016 at 11:34 PM

    I then need help figuring out what to do with Config List 2 & 3 in each set.

    These used to be one config list, and I was going to get your help to separate them out into multiple rows like in this earlier thread.

    I separated the 2nd list out from the 3rd, primarily to have a specific label related to the fields contained therein. On my form, I have put in a text field in the FIRST set of three lists, for you to have a look at. It shows kind of how I would like this to appear, given that the config list doesn't currently support hover text or sub-label text.

    Can this text field be coded to get closer to the above field to look more like subtext?

    And if we continue to keep this list separate from the next one, can you equalise the 3 input columns so Right Now, At worst and At best are all the same width.

    Also, if we keep this list separate, can we just completely get rid of the labels above each field, seeing I have the same text in as 'hint text'

    It might be possible to change the position of your text field by adding the CSS code. Do you want to change the position of your label as a sub-label?

    Could you please provide us which text that you want to get closer? At that time we can assist more properly.

    No sorry. This request applies to a different config list. On the i think
    3rd page you will find 12 different config lists (4 sets of 3) related to
    health concerns.
    This query relates to the second list in each group of 3...the one on
    intensity of pain.
    I have put in a text field below the first such config list...the text
    relates to 0=no pain 10= worst imaginable.
    I would like that text to move up closer underneath the config list to
    simulate sub label text.
    Then i will do the same for the same second list in each of tje following 3

    Thank you for providing the text field that you want to move. Coud you please inject the CSS code below:

    #text_386 {

        position : relative !important;

        top : -30px !important;

    font-size : 9px !important;


    At that time, it will work as expected.

    Here is how it works on my side:
