View Full Version : multiple <select> positioning help

10-28-2010, 06:45 PM

I have 3 select boxes on my form. One for month, day, and year. As it stands now the boxes are listed vertically. My question is how can I line them up horizontally. For example:

Current layout:


Targeted layout:

month day year

The over all layout is built with tables and divs. Here is my code:

<div class="text-area">
<form action="#" id="companyForm">
<div> <!-- form start -->
<div id="form1">
<p>This is an order form for clients new to services.</p>
<p>What is the name of the new client's business?</p>
<input type="textbox" name="cbizname" />
<br />
<p>Please enter the targeted businesses website URLs.</p>
<textarea name="targeturl" cols="40" rows="5"></textarea>

<div id="form2">
<p>provide Pay Per Click (PPC) Services to this client?</p>
<label><input type="radio" name="ppcyes" /> Yes</label>
<label><input type="radio" name="ppcno" /> No</label>
<label><input type="radio" name="ppcnotnow" /> Not Right Now</label>
<!-- if no/not right now goto form4 -->

<div id="form3">
<p>Please enter the requested metrics for the lifetime of the Pay Per Click campaign:<p>
<label>Targeted Clicks <input type="text" name="targetclicks" /></label>
<label>Targeted Cost Per Click <input type="text" name="targetcpc" /></label>
<label>Targeted Click to Action Percent <input type="text" name="targetctap" /></label>

<p> PPC services are billed at the greater of $1500 or 16% of search engine marketing spend.</p>
<p>Date on which Pay Per Click Management begins:</p>

Put them in a list and float the <li> left....similar to navigation tabs.
