We would like to make the "Short Description" and the "Description" inputboxes on the Upload Document form shorter. I found that the setting for those inputboxes are in the administrator/components/com_edocman/model/forms/document.xml file:
<field
		name="short_description"
		type="editor"
		label="EDOCMAN_SHORT_DESCRIPTION"
		description="EDOCMAN_SHORT_DESCRIPTION_DESC"
		class="inputbox"
		filter="JComponentHelper::filterText"
		width="100%"
		height="150"		
		buttons="true"
		hide="readmore,pagebreak,module"/>

But when I change to height = "75", the change doesn't work when the form displays. When the form loads, the inputbox is shorter, but then the form refreshes to 150. What else do I need to change?

Thank you,

Kent

Hi Kent,
The description fields are editors, so that, we can't setup width and height sizes of those fields at frontend

Hi Dam

And when I do not want a document description box in the upload form? Where can I switch off this function?

Hi Arnold,
Please let know the Upload form that you are using at frontend, simple or fully form?
Thanks

Hi,
Please open file: root -> components -> com_edocman -> view -> document -> tmpl -> simple.php
Find:
<?php echo $this->form->getField('description')->save(); ?>
<?php echo $this->form->getField('short_description')->save(); ?>
<tr>
	<td colspan="2">
		<?php echo $this->form->getLabel('short_description'); ?>
		<div class="clr"></div>
		<?php echo $this->form->getInput('short_description'); ?>
		<div class="clr"></div>
		<?php echo $this->form->getLabel('description'); ?>
		<div class="clr"></div>
		<?php echo $this->form->getInput('description'); ?>
	</td>
</tr>

And remove them

Thanks
Dam
