Left-aligned, place description above fields (without PHP edits)

  1. When left alignment is selected for label placement, is it possible to modify the GF output to display descriptions above the field content instead of below--without editing the plugin files?

    Do you think that this jQuery trick from 3 yrs ago would still work? Is there a better jQuery class selector that would move all descriptions rather than having to hard code each?

  2. This may not be the best, but it works:

    $(document).ready(function() {
    		$(".gfield_description").each(function(i) {
    			$(this).parent().prepend(this);
    		});
    	});

    However, it doesn't work when AJAX is turned for form paging. In that case, you need to also add:

    $(document).bind('gform_page_loaded', function(){
    		$(".gfield_description").each(function(i) {
    			$(this).parent().prepend(this);
    		});
    	});

    Is there a good way to combine these?

  3. It looks like you have this working now. Did you still need help with this, or will one solution or the other help you with your form?
