    Form size field

    http://www.countyfairgrounds.net/tes...eighteen3.html

    Hello, I have a toggle form sizing problem . I don't think the toggle code is the problem here. Actually there appears to be only one problem with this form. When you hit the the button "Vendors, Click the Toggle to open and close the selection table" you can see the form. And you can see obviously what is wrong with it. The size attribute is not working - period. I have tried "everything" . Help please
    oh my css file for this page is

    Set the width of an input field with css - it's easier.

    That's already happening on your site from this:

    bootstrap.css (line 1106)
    Code:
    input, textarea, .uneditable-input {
        width: 206px;
    }
    Ajust that width downwards - perhaps for this specific form:

    Code:
    #vendEntTable input{width:150px}
    Use the W3C HTML Validator and CSS Validator to check your code and Firebug to see what css is applied to an element

    Thank you so much, I would never thought of looking in the bootstrap.css file.

    You're welcome.
    Use Firebug - see my sig - to see the css applied to a particular element.
