    How can changes to elements change a form?

    Asked by zk1 on April 26, 2012 at 10:36 AM

    Hi there,

    Using right click inspect element on my form in chrome, I was able to customise a matrix table to the exact way I wanted it by editing the elements. The matrix looked perfect onscreen but when I went to save it and view it later it was still the old type of matrix.

    So whilst I was able to change the matrix on my screen in the browser, this did not actually change the form in any way. How do I get these changes to actually take effect on my form?

    PS The changes I am talking about are changing some radio buttons into textboxes in a matrix.

    Many thanks for your help!

    If you want to make some changes of your form, don't customize it using the inspect elements of Chrome. Because, even though you customized it perfectly, it won't actually change/update your form after. I suggest, if you want some changes of your form, edit your form through JotForm builder(editor). You can inject custom CSS also in your form if you added some codes.

    You can used this guideline: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Hope you find it helpful and informative.

    Feel free to contact us anytime if you need further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!
