    The MultiSelect Grid widget can be made mobile responsive, but it may still have some problems on really small devices (those having under 400 pixels of available width).

    To make this widget mobile responsive, we need to inject custom CSS both in the form, and inside the widgets themselves. Inside the form, we will be inserting this CSS:

    li[data-type="control_widget"] > .form-input { width: 100%; }
    .custom-field-frame[src*="//widgets.jotform.io/multiSelectGrid/"] { width: 100% !important; }

    What the code does is it makes sure that the iframe container of each widget will be taking 100% of the available horizontal space on form. As this space on your form is decreasing, so will the iframe automatically resize. You can add CSS into your form by following this guide:


    Or you can do it by opening up our Designer, and pasting the code in the Designer.

    The other code we will be adding should be added to each widget separately, by clicking on the widget's wand-shaped icon, and pasting it under the Custom CSS tab:

    th, td {
        min-width: 0;

    Please try it out and let us know should you need further assistance. Thank you.
