    How to use inject CSS to remove hover popups in mobile environment only

    Asked by markashton on April 24, 2012 at 11:28 AM


    I would like to be able to remove the hover function tootips from the mobile environment but retain them in the desktop environment.

    The CSS is .form-description

    Can you advise me as to whether it is possible to do this and if so I would greatly appreciate a hint or two.

    Thanks so much

    Regards Mark

    Do you mind if we ask for the URL of your form that has hover text for further assistance?

    Thank you!

    URL is: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/21136404015943

    Have tried this:

    @media handheld .form-description{ display:none; }

    but keeps rendering the @ to // in the ninject CSS


    Note: hover is on the decor field

    Actually, why do you need the URL above?

    Can you just advise me whether jotform is capable of taking CSS that will differentiate the behaviour of elements on a desktop from that of a handheld?

    Would you be kind enough to provide me with a response please - I've posted several posts today and they just seem to have been ignored

    Many Thanks

    We are very sorry for the delay.

    You are not ignored, we are just very busy today. As far as I know, you can not disable that mobile CSS code.

    The workaround is to download full source code of your form, then modify sources_folder\css\styles\form.css file, and use that modified stylesheet file for your form.

    You can delete @media only screen and (max-device-width: 550px){ and everything below that line to disable mobile CSS. 

    Thank you for using our services.

    you state: "you can not disable that mobile CSS code" .. 

    This statement is confused.... Do I understand it that you are advising me as follows ....

    "Jotform custom inject CSS is incapable of accepting any mobile CSS markup e.g. @media" 

    Your solution ... mm.m... why would I want to delete all that .... are you answering a different question than the one I asked?

    Regards Mark

    I am sorry for misunderstanding, I thought that you are interested in disabling all the mobile CSS code for your form due to your recent thread, so yes, I was answering a different question :)

    However, you are right about injecting CSS for mobile markup, it is not currently possible to do that using our Inject Custom CSS tool.

    I have created a ticket to our Next Level Support to see if we can do anything with this.

    We will update this thread if we get any more information for you.

    I'll make this a feature request in a seperate thread .... actually first ... is it just a case of making the inject CSS area accept the @ symbol for media queries ... which currently defaults to this symbol ... // 


    Thanks, Mark

    This issue is now resolved. You can now use at-sign "@" in the Custom Inject CSS.
