Thread: Making a big form questionnaire thing. Tables?

  1. #16
    you must not have been internetting correctly

    I got your internet. Right here.

    Still looking gay in IE. IE doesn't seem to care about the width property in tables. And it's still placing text inputs and drop down menus side by side.

    Oh well. I'll worry about it tomorrow morning.

    LEARNING IS FUN

    LOL, Now now you two!

    Just a small little critique: That menu on the left, confused the crap out of me for the first few seconds. I think you should make them on click->show instead of on hover->show. Of course, that's just one opinion.

    I'll check the width issues when I get home on a PC.

    Yeah, I'm not a giant fan of how it works myself, but they seem to, and I guess that's all that matters. Heh.

    Judging by firebug, you still haven't defined a width for your label, this could fix your IE problem


    To fix the problem with drop down menus and inputs,

    you can break the two apart into two different table rows, and set the label to rowspan=2

    HTML Code:
    <table>
    <tr>
    <th rowspan="2"><label>LABELZ</label></th>
    <td>DROP DOWN MENU</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>INPUT YO</td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    *edit: if doing that gives too much padding inbetween the drop down and input, you can give those two <tr>'s a class and adjust the padding:

    HTML Code:
    <table>
    <tr class="mod">
    <th rowspan="2"><label>LABELZ</label></th>
    <td>DROP DOWN MENU</td>
    </tr>
    <tr class="mod">
    <td>INPUT YO</td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    Code:
    table tr.mod th, table tr.mod td { /* modify padding for both <th> and <td> */
    padding-top: ---- px; 
    }

    I have it commented it out at the moment. It didn't work.
    I want to punch IE in its proverbial face.

    Oooh, smart move on the rowspan. I didn't think of trying that. I'll test that out. Thanks.

    That is very strange, do you also have your labels defined as block?

  8. #23
    Oopsie scroodles. I did not.
    Well, that looks good now. Yay. I retract my punch in IE's face.

    IE is like, a foreign exchange student, you have be veeeeerrrrrrrrryyyyyy descriptive about what you want it to do or it will get it wrong/not do it at all/hit on my sister

    lol. Guess who's a retard. GUESS GUYS.

    They weren't on separate lines because the inputs in the HTML were out of order. They were still nested within the dropdowns. Christ I'm stupid.

  11. #26
    HAhah, s'all good... I still suggest putting them into different table rows, you have more control over padding that way
