Thanks Daniel - this is a lifesaver....I'm using your code because all other solutions to the problem of the HTML block auto-closing tags does not work (at least not with the most current version of GF as of today) and I needed to create fieldsets for my form.

I do have one question though.....how would I modify this to have the Open Field Group item display it's label? I'd like to be able to use the field Label as a pseudo-legend tag instead of having to add an HTML block. I'm not a programmer, but capable of following clear instructions. :-)

Thanks!

Thanks - this is a great addition - should be part of Gravity Forms!

Just to help others, the way I used this feature was to enter a Custom CSS Class into each of the Field Group Open elements on the form called 'gfield_group', and then add a CSS rule into custom.css as follows:

.gfield_group {
padding: 20px;
border: 2px solid grey;
background-color: #efefef;
}

Then just insert a Field_Group_Open as the first field in a group and a Field_Group_Close as the last.

This will style all groups the same. If you want different styles, just change the Custom CSS Class on the Field Group Open element and create the corresponding custom css.

Hi this is really nice, would it be possible to add the functionality for allowing the users duplicate the particular group field when filling the form has the need arises.
