[Pro] slight code help needed

Hi,

Walt helped me make a search box on my site a while ago.

Is there a way I can make the search box taller?

here is the code. I can make it wider but not taller.

The search box can be seen here. Right above the table of links…

Thanks,

Barry

Don’t know how you created the field but if it exists on your FW page you could use Mike B’s Form Element Styler action

I have this Dave, but I do not think what I have is a form.

As I said ‘I don’t know how this was put together’

Is there a text field in your FW layout?

If there is the action can be applied to that.

When you say taller - by how much. Give me a number.

The height of the search field can be set using CSS, but the easiest way to make it larger is to increase the font size. Click once on the input, and choose Item/ Extended from the main menu. Make sure the tab is selected, click New, and add

  • Name: style
  • Value: font-size: 24px

Fiddle with the font size to suit your design. Note that you won’t see any difference in Freeway, you will have to preview in a browser.

(If you’re viewing this in Mail, don’t type the back-ticks – they are there to provide formatting on the Web)

Walt, not working for me yet

  1. Do I click the markup item?

  2. After I click item/extend, do I click the <> button?

  3. I have no NEW. There is only an add there

  4. is it
    font-size: 24px or
    font size: 24px

Thanks

Hmmm. Okay, I didn’t realize you had made the search field manually like that. Can you post what is in your Markup Item? As far as 3 goes, you are right, and I wasn’t looking at the dialog when I wrote that. Add is what I meant. But if you made the form field manually with code in a markup item, then you can’t use this trick the way I wrote it. These instructions are only going to work if you draw a text field on the page (or insert it in the run of text) in Freeway.

Just add the font-size;24px to the style portion of that code, so it reads: style="width:300px; font-size:24px;. Note that when you have one property in a style attribute, you can get away without the semicolon, but when you have more than one, you have to terminate each one with a semicolon so it is clear they are multiple properties.

I have no clue how Walter put this together for you but I suspect the problem is that the field has type=“search” which restricts your styling.

Does it have to be type - search, or could it be something else if the protaculous code was tweaked to match?

Hey Dave,

Nothing on that.
I am going to pass on this as it is not that important.
Appreciate you and Walt trying.

no I will and I will do it on a TEST page so you can ignore the other math page

I’ll do this today.

Thanks.

Just duplicate the existing Math page and do it on the duplicate.

Let me know what its called once you have done it.
