    confused about coding for the matrix.

    Asked by The_Mighty_Optiq on April 21, 2012 at 11:12 PM

    a little while back somebody gave me this code to modify my matrix fields


    .form-matrix-values {

                     padding-left: 4px;padding-right: 4px;

    }/* 1st Column */


    .form-matrix-row-headers +.form-matrix-values .form-dropdown {

                    width: 100px; padding-left: 4px;padding-right: 4px;

    }/* 2nd Column */


    .form-matrix-row-headers +.form-matrix-values +.form-matrix-values .form-dropdown {

                    width: 100px; padding-left:

    }/* 3rd Column */
        .form-matrix-row-headers +.form-matrix-values +.form-matrix-values +.form-matrix-values .form-dropdown{

                    width: 100px;

    }/* 4th Column */

    .form-matrix-row-headers +.form-matrix-values +.form-matrix-values +.form-matrix-values +.form-matrix-values .form-dropdown {

                    width: 100px;

        .form-matrix-row-headers {visibility: hidden;}
        .form-matrix-table {border-collapse: inherit;}
        .form-matrix-table {margin-left: -20px;}


    I wanted to make some more changes so I started playing with the coding just to see what controls what.... and NOTHING happened when I changed the valus....  why would this happen?.

    Hi there,

    What's the form URL so we can check it here?

    Also, have you tried clearing your browser cache after applying the codes? See if that helps. 

    Looking forward to your response.
