    Some of the areas in my form, like the phone number and the reason for visit, you can't see when you are typing in the information. It looks like nothing is able to be typed in that area. But when I submit the form, I can see that there is text typed there. How do I fix this?

    Hi

    I have an Input Table in which I wish to control the width of the columns individually to avoid the user having scroll the table to the right to see the last field.

    I have the following field id's:
    #input_98_0_0, #input_98_0_1, #input_98_0_2, #input_98_0_3, #input_98_0_4, #input_98_0_5, #input_98_1_0, #input_98_1_1, #input_98_1_2, #input_98_1_3, #input_98_1_4, #input_98_1_5, #input_98_2_0, #input_98_2_1, #input_98_2_2, #input_98_2_3, #input_98_2_4, #input_98_2_5,

    and so on.

    I want set the width of columns 2,3,4 & 5

    Can you please help with the CSS code to do this ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello, I am in need of being able to customize the colors on the multiselect grid widget. Please provide the CSS code needed in order to do so. I only know who to change the color by changing the name of the font color to the HEX code I'd want. Thank you in advance.

  • ashley.eylenburg

    Hi, I'd like to add a button to my form which opens a separate URL in a separate browser window. I'd like to customize the buttom label. This is so a user can click the button to open a web page for recommendations before answering the next set of questions on my form. Thanks.

  • sfranklin977

    I have 11 checkboxes in one column layout. When I attempt to shrink the column, one of the checkboxes is immediately moved out of that column to a second column. I need to prevent that from happening so I can shrink that column in order to add a second column beside it with different checkboxes. Hope that makes sense. All of these checkboxes are mapped to a pdf document.

    Hi!... I'm trying to put BOLD in an specific label, how can I do it?... I don't want all the labels to appear bold, I just need an specific word of a label to appear in bold. My text is

    "1. Payment for class impartation or payment for group accompaniment"

    I want the number 1 to appear in bold and if possible in other color too. The label ID is #input_483

    Is there a way I can do this?... Thank you!

  • Prunera

    I have added Square Payment to my order form. It shows the total amount of the calculated order in the window with USD at the far right side. I would like to add a dollar sign in front of the number that get calculated in there, along with a comma for any amount over $1,000 and a decimal point before any change. Is there a way to edit the css code? (ps I am a total newb when it comes to coding)

    Is there a way to add custom colors to the Rich Text Editor? I would like to allow our form builders to use our brand red rather than the generic red allowed for text color OR for fill color.

  • rdge

    How can you make the input fields and text of the input fields larger?

  • Adams_Andy

    I've been using the Form Calculation Widget (which is fantastic!) and I'd love to be able to keep the field visible while preventing the user from adjusting the numbers in that field.

    For instance:

    Item Price (filled in by user)
    Quantity (filled in by user)
    Subtotal (calculated from the users inputs above - BUT they can also type in a new number here)

    Here's a link to my form

  • carlyhavard

    Hello, initially the form looked perfect but I have had a few dummy runs with friends and the feedback is mainly positive but on the mobile questionnaire some of the words have become misaligned, ie) drugs is now drug and the s is on the following line. Any advice would be fab. Also can you tell if the signature box is working? 1 of my friends had a problem with it. Thanks, look forward to your help. Best wishes, Carly.

    Hi,

    I am using 'spreadsheet to form' but can't find a way to increase the textbox height to 42px.

    It is not an option in the Advanced Designer.

    Can anyone tell me the CSS code to inject? Or another way to do it?

    Thanks for any help. :-)

    I would like to add a sub label to a widget please.

  • NicolCorcExpo

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this question, but it seems it might be. I use collapsible sections a lot and have often wondered if there is a way to, I'm guessing using CSS, to create nested collapsible sections? I'm thinking so that they'd look something like the images here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1YoJffOFRHmGRczFNVuWpks4r6V1Rys-4?usp=sharing

    Further, is there a way to assign specific colors by section and/or level?

    Thanks!

  • LEDAGrants

    Hi, how would I add a block to the address element, for example if I wanted to add a block to ask about what parish they are located in. There seems to be no way to add it using the preset options so how could I code this in using CSS?

    Thanks

  • ChristChurchAnglican

    Hello, I need to change the colour of the background of the column labels. Can you please advise?

    Thanks!

  • jmmi2757

    Sugerencias para mejorar y alguna pregunta:

    1º Cómo se puede cambiar fuente y tamaño de las cajas de textos donde escribe el cliente y no me refiero a estilo de las etiquetas.

    2º Al duplicar cualquier campo etc. debería ponerse también su tamaño igual no dibujarlo en formulario final, con un click debiera ser suficiente.

    3º Añadir páginas sueltas de formularios propios en otros sin tener que clonar todo o volver a poner campos uno a uno.

    4º Poder seleccionar en panel izquierdo (diseño) para duplicar campos en grupos grandes no individualmente.

    5º Ampliar los comandos de condiciones lógicas para adaptarlos a las necesidades.

    Gracias

  • Tabbitt

    Hello! So I'm using the Scale Rating Module on my form.
    I want my clients to rate us from 1-11.
    I want to put right on the side of the number "11" a smiley face.
    The CSS ID for number "11" is "#input_30_11"

    So... Before trying to put a smiley face I want to try other more simple stuff, like putting text-decoration declarations... You know, just for the sake of testing... So I went to my CSS section on the Form Designer Section and put some code...
    And it's not working, I'm not seeing any changes... Any ideas on how could I make this happen?

    Here is the code...

    #input_30_11 {
    text-decoration: line-through;
    }

    I'll be waiting for your response,
    Thanks!
