    Does JotForm offer a combo box field?

    Asked by dlasson on May 22, 2017 at 02:22 PM


    I have the same question as Charlie but I see the thread was not continued.

    A combo box is a list box that also has an editable text box so users can enter a value that isn't in the list. For example, if a drop-down menu has the following options: "Today," "Tomorrow," and "Next Week," and the user wants to enter something else, say, "Next Month," there would be a blank option/field into which the user could enter "Next Month."

    Is there such an option available?

    I'm afraid we don't offer something like that - The closest thing that I can think of are the Widgets that I'm enumerating below:

    1. User Contributed Radio Buttons Widget

    2. User Contributed Checkbox Widget

    3. User Contributed Dropdown Widget

    Give each of them a try and see if they will fit your needs.

    The drop-down widget suits my needs.
