Is there a way of making a TEXT Field Size smaller than 20%.
I only require a maximum length of 5 characters, and because my form has so many text fields displaying
data, the form view on a phone is soooo long.
Any ideas welcome. Thanks

Hi Lou,
One way is to add a little css to your form.
<style>
#docContainer .fb-input-box input {
font-size: 10px!important;
}
</style>

Another option is jQuery.
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script> <script>var jQ = $.noConflict(true);
jQ( document ).ready(function() {
jQ('input[type="text"]').css("fontSize", "10px");
});</script>
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Hi Eric,

Tried the CSS but it only adjusts the Text Height i was more interested in the adjusting the Text Field Length to a value less than 20%.
I want to display more than one text field across the width on a phone screen.
Hope that makes sense ??

UPDATE:
I changed the CSS from font size to width but it still leaves a greyed out large container to the right of the Text Field.
I will keep playing.

Give this a try.
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script> <script>var jQ = $.noConflict(true);
jQ( document ).ready(function() {
jQ('input[type="text"]').parents(':eq(2)').css("width", "50%");
});</script>
