    Why are the fields for the date picker so small?

    Asked by PriestleyManagement on August 16, 2016 at 11:29 AM

    I have added a date picker on our Architectural Request form. The fields are very small and when you enter the year, you cannot see the entire entry. How do I make the fields bigger?


    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    It seems that you've tried changing some of the text box styles, but the date field has been affected causing the issue. 

    I've fixed it for you by adding the following custom CSS codes to your form:

    [data-type="control_datetime"] span[style*="white-space"] > .form-sub-label-container:first-child {

        display : none;


    [data-type="control_datetime"] .form-input> span:nth-child(3) {

        width : 24%;

        margin-right : 0;


    [data-type="control_datetime"] .form-input> span:nth-child(3) input {

        width : 100%;


    [data-type="control_datetime"] .form-input> span:nth-child(4) {

        width : 6%;


    [data-type="control_datetime"] .form-input span:nth-child(5) {

        padding-top : 10px;


    [data-type="control_datetime"] .form-input .form-sub-label-container {

        width : 30%;

        margin-right : 0;


    [data-type="control_datetime"] .form-input .form-sub-label-container input,

    [data-type="control_datetime"] .form-input .form-sub-label-container select {

        width : 80%;


    [data-type="control_datetime"] .form-sub-label-container .date-separate {

        visibility: visible;
