I signed up for a trial MyContactForm account tonight and have a few questions after working with it awhile.

1. The error page that comes up if you forget a field seems to be a 600px centered table, but the space I have allocated for the form is only 400px wide, so the error text is cut off on the right. Do I have any control over the width and alignment of this table. I would like to set align=left and width=400.

2. Is there a way that I can determine where the date selector popup calendar appears when you click the calendar icon. I see that it has absolute positioning, but I don't see any way for me to set top and left.

3. The calendar has a light blue header and a light blue background color for the selected date. Is there a way I can change that color?

Thanks,
Steve

This is not configurable. It shouldn't be an issue unless you have the form displayed within a frame. If you are doing this, consider altering our form code so that the submission breaks out of the frame. Add the following code to the opening form tag:

Code:
target="_parent"

You could manually change this is the code, but we wouldn't recommend it as the css is designed to show position the calendar relative to the form question.

You should be able to manually change this in the form HTML.
