    Looking for a dropdown selection with tabs

    Asked by stormingrobots on January 23, 2017 at 11:18 AM
    Hi,  I have looked thru that. However, I am looking for that to replace my dropbox selection of classes. I do not want to make my whole form with multiple page form tab.  Advice is appreciated.

    Please take a look of this: https://www.jotform.com//?formID=70208611384148#

    I would like to allow users to see all classes available for the week. If I expand the # entries visiable, it will make the form unnecessarily much larger.  Therefore, I am thinking about using tab forms.

    You can group fields using form collapse tool. This creates a collapsible section in the live form.

    In addition to that, you can also use page break if you want to divide your forms into multiple pages. Then add this widget to your form to generate the tabs http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/form_tabs

    I think I mixed up two topics here.. This thread is supposed to only talk about having the ability to allow user to select thru different menu tab to pick the selections instead of the dropdown menu. - see the email thread.  

     

    The grouping of fields should be a different thread. I apologize.

     for  I have moved fields grouping  topic to : https://www.jotform.com/answers/1043808-How-can-I-count-the-number-of-dropbox-being-filled/?&updatemessage=10732640770

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Although we do not have the field you're looking for, you might want to consider this widget.

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/dropdown_with_paging

    It's a dropdown field with paging.

    You might also want to consider these:
