    Use html tags on form fields and labels are not working anymore

    Asked by eridamega on January 31, 2017 at 03:51 PM

    How can I do the following:

    I wish that in the structure of the mail, place each item side by side, but when someone selects the item appears with a line break (in the final mail)

    I used the BR tag in the form before and it worked,


    but it does not work now. Now if you select several items appear next to each other

    If in the mail structure (html) I place one under the other, the table height would be very large, even if the last item is selected, an empty space appears between the top of the table and the selected item

    Please, I need your help.

    Thanks you

    Using html codes within the context of field labels, names, and selection will not work anymore. This was the reason the BR tag you used before is now not working.

    This was done for security reason.

    For what you wanted to achieve on the Dropdown list, I recommend using the Dynamic Dropdown widget instead.

    You can check it on this demo form https://form.jotformpro.com/form/43514646570961

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks for answering,

    Can you apply calculation values for example to put prices on items?

    Since the next question was about a different feature, we will discuss it separately on another thread here https://www.jotform.com/answers/1052573
