Subject Re: [Apache Bloodhound] #468: Content is not well aligned within the quick ticket dialog
Date Sat, 16 Mar 2013 19:23:39 GMT
You can try using the CSS3 box-sizing property. By default it's set to
"content-box" which first calculates the element width and then *adds*
border and padding to get the "total" width. So in your case this becomes
100% + <some value> and this is then squeezed into the parent div which
has a fixed width of 300px.
If you use the "border-box" value, it will calculate the width including
padding and border. For the textarea this seems fine, but for the input
you'll have to compensate with a bit of top and bottom padding, like this:
#qct-fieldset input, #qct-fieldset textarea {
    width: 100%;
    box-sizing: border-box;
#qct-fieldset input {
    padding-top: 1em;
    padding-bottom: 1em;

The above works fine for me, but I haven't tested it in all browsers
(you may have to use -moz-box-sizing and/or -webkit-box-sizing as well).
