    Hi Alex,

    Could you assist with a resize issue in the DFFS form. I have attached a screenshot (I have removed tab and field names).

    The form does not seem to resize properly which leaves the tabs and other fields on a single line which requires the user to scroll.

    I am using the latest version of DFFS in IE11 and Chrome version 53.0.2785

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Found the reason the wrapping is not occurring.

    Their are read only fields with the class “dffs-readonly-inner” which seem to set the min-width before the form is resized e.g. style=”min-width: 1500px” instead of style=”min-width: 500px”.

    As a temporary fix I have added the following CSS:

    .dffs-readonly-inner {
       min-width: inherit !important
    I haven't done much testing and this may cause other issues. I would also like to avoid using !important if the cause of the width is resolved.
    Thanks again.

    The width of the dffs-readonly-inner is calculated from the width of the #sbs_FieldTable_FIN – where FIN is the fieldinternalname of your field on runtime.

    Do you have any Custom CSS that sets the width of some of the side-by-side elements?

    Hi Alex,

    Thanks for the reply, sorry for a late response back to you. You are correct and error was on my side.

    The custom CSS that was already on the tab was:

    .sbs_FieldTable *{
     width:auto !important;
    /* Ensure the tooltip icon won't collapse */

    Which was on added from the DFFS style guide DFFS: Styling

    The fields had only been set to auto and not been given fixed widths later on as your guide steps through.
