Hi,

I have a input text form, i am trying to move the cursor position 12px to the right - i can use padding-left but the text starts overflowing. Does anyone have any solutions to this?

	    <div id="mainTop3">
			<form name='search' method='post' action='#'>
				    
				    <div class='search_box'><input type='text' name='search_box'/></div>
				    <div class='search_button'><input type='submit' /></div>
				    
			</form>
			
	    </div>

Open in new window



css

#mainTop3 .search_box input{height:52px; width:234px; background:url(../images1/search_bar.png) 0 0 no-repeat;margin-top:8px; padding-left:12px; margin-left:200px; float:left; border:0; }

Open in new window

thanks in advance

Just add padding-right:5px to the CSS.

Can you attach your actual background image instead of a screenshot?

I fixed it by subtracting the left padding value from the width of the box.

thanks for your help
