    Allow users to repeatedly "add" duplicate copies of a section of a form

    Asked by ianlowe on June 09, 2017 at 06:19 AM

    I have a form that allows users to send in details of items they want to have valued. It has several rows with different data fields.

    I currently have repeated the section 4 times to allow users to submit details of 4 separate items.

    However, I would ultimately like to be able to provide an infinite loop so users can simply click on a button and have a section of the form repeated to match the number of items they wish to submit details for.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks, the Configure widget looks quite useful but they al seem to be limited to adding a single row,
    unfortunately I can't get all the information I need into one row so I was looking at some way to define
    a range of rows and have that range repeatable.
    Best Regards

    Hello Ian,

    It's possible to move to a new line some parts of the Configurable List widget, but it's quite complicated to do. Perhaps you can share with us the fields that you wish to have on this widget and we'll do what we can to assist you in creating a CSS for it to be formatted to fit your form's width.

    Just let us know anytime.

    Thanks.
