Adding a Horizontal Rule to separate section of Issue Entry form??

I think this can be done by creating a Custom Field. The problem is, I'd need a new cusotm field for each HR I want. Is there any way to use the same field repeatedly in a form?

By the way, I attempted to add HR's using JS in a custom field's description but it doesn't work. Perhaps jira page doesn't allow appending new elelments?

Any ideas?

It should work, try something like:

AJS.$(function () {

It's a bit harder in jira5, but you can still do this.

Thanks, but it doesn't work, this is what i tried:

<script language="JavaScript">





nothing happens when I do that. And there is a div there, I can edit the dom with chrome and insert an HR manually and that works.

> Thanks, but it doesn't work

Yeah, but what I put does work, because I tested it.

You don't mention what jira you're on, but that fieldarea stuff is an old version. If it's an element ID then you need a #, ie AJS.$("#customfield_10510FieldArea")

No, it doesn't matter. The IDs changed between one version of jira and the next around that time, I think FieldArea was downcased. Can you paste the bit from the html source that contains that element, so we can check.

NB - this is one problem with doing this, you will end up needing to change it quite often.

I'm on 4.1 Jira. I added the hash and still nothing. I do have javascript in other fields and that works. Does this code need to be in a specific field's description? I would imagine not.

This worked for me:

<script language="JavaScript">





Please pardon my ignorance but is the above still valid in JIRA 6.3? Where exactly would i need to put the above code fragment?

the last 2012 comment adds some blank pixels below a field, but doesn't show any kind of horizontal rule on v7.1.9

Works for me - perhaps it's the styling of the hr
