What would be the best way to create an inline form?

I wish to create an inline form above the navbar header in bootstrap would it be better to using inline block to display the form or just use another nav bar?

I have tried using inline block but my for keeps collapsing.

Can we see a sample of your code? :D

From what I see you already have the effect, your problem is that you navigation is not responsive, and possibly too much the phone number's container is too wide, so it pushes for form elements off the page. Maybe you should look into using a fluid grid?

Is your problem that when the screen gets small enough the form elements begin to stack over one another? Because that is the expected behaviour for none-fluid inline-blocks. Also for small screens you would not want your form to remain inline since there is limited horizontal space.

Also I added a vertical-align bottom to the submit button so that when the form is all in a single row the button lines up with the other inputs : https://jsfiddle.net/zbfspxoy/

Okay, here is another example. This time I am using fluid widths and floats instead of inline-block, but with tweaking you could also make it work for inline-block.


You can see the styles I added at the end of the CSS.

Is there any way to nudge it slightly to the right or would i have to use a fluid container for that?
