    Visual MultiSelect Widget

    Asked by sckuperman on June 23, 2017 at 11:02 AM

    Is there a way to keep the options on the left intact so those options can be selected multiple times to the right?

    Is there a way to assign values to each option/element like in drop downs, so that the options can be Calculated?

    Unfortunately, the widget will move the selected option to the left side and will not allow to leave it as available on the right. There are other widgets that work in a similar way, but they still do not allow such feature. 

    Is there a way to assign values to each option/element like in drop downs, so that the options can be Calculated?

    Widgets do not accept currently calculation values, the options can be taken as strings of text only, this happens due to the way how widgets are developed, they basically are loaded from an external page using an iFrame element in the JotForm form. 

    If you need to assign calculation values, then you would need to use basic fields instead. 

    Let us know if you have any question, we will be glad to help.
