    I really like this widget because it allows my users to select multiple options without the ambiguous holding down of command or ctrl, but I can't get the calculator widget to count how many total options have been selected. I messed around with the conditional logic and have tried several variables, but let me know if it's a limitation in the widget itself and/or if there's a workaround. Thanks.

    This can be achieved using 'Simple Multiple Choice' (Check Boxes)

    Here is the demo form I created for you https://form.jotform.com/70653219647966

    You would need Form Calculator widget along with that to count the selected options.

     

    2.

    3. Use Form Calculation Property to count the selected checkboxes

    Hope this helps

    I most definitely understand that. I was wondering if I could achieve this with that particular widget. Problem is mainly my city category that has 30 options. Thanks for the reply, though.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to count selections from the given widget. You will need to use our regular checkbox/radio button/dropdown field to do it.

    Well, darn! I was also thinking that maybe I could modify the css/js of your generic multiple choice to make it look and behave like that particular widget.

    Sucks there isn't currently a solution. I figured since I could just glance to see how many options have been chosen, I would think transferring that number to the payment field would be simple enough.

    Thanks for the response, though. Have a great day.
