Bootstrap in-line form - how to customize the default size bootstrap

Follow-on question to last one.

I am able to customize bootstrap in-line default solution to extend the length of a form field. However I am unable to vary the size of such fields. I can either have the default length or an increased length which is about 50% longer. I need to increase the length by 3 times the default length. Perhaps I need to use another approach, or there is something obviously stupid in my code.

I am attaching the Form page code and the  customization CSS which I am using. Appreciate someone looking through it - to find the error I am making or to confirm the approach I am taking is wrong and pointing my in a better direction

Thanks for your help

increase-width css used to customize
.increase-width {
	width: 150% !important;
}

Open in new window


Page which presents Form and uses above customization  css (increase-width.css)

Note : Line 12 shows integration of customizaton css into page
            Lines 47 and 96 show utilization of increase-width css into form fields.

HI,
try using 300% instead of 150%

read some book or tutorial on CSS... it will help you.

if you want someone else to look at it let me know, so I will discontinue answering.

thanks,
Prasadh

i'll try that Prasadh. No, it would be great if you would take the time to continue - I see this as a natural follow on from my last question - which you answered for me.

Thanks
