    Unfortunately, we don't have this options yet in our Form Builder, although you can implement this if you embed your form using full source codes and customize it to use a JavaScript soultion such as one that is detailed on this page: http://www.itechies.net/tutorials/jscript/jsexample.php-pid-check-limit.htm

    If you need further assistance, do let us know.

    Thank you!

    Where does the java script get added into the code? Before the list or selections or after?

    Thank you!

    This thread is more than 2 years old. You need not to add any Javascript code to your source code since this feature is now added to the properties of checkboxes so that you can limit the minimum selections and maximum selections as well. 

    And this is how it is displayed.


    Hope this information helps. Let us know if you have any questions. We will be happy to help.


    Thank you!
