    Power Dropdowns?

    Asked by johny why on August 28, 2012 at 11:39 AM



    Does JotForm include the following controls? If not, is there any chance JotForm will implement them? Or would you help me program it, if I buy your product?


    -combo-box: dropdown that allows typing

    -data-aware dropdown: loaded from backend table or query.

    Combo box dropdown with typing feature is not available as for now . However it might be implemented in the future

    Data loaded into the form, from a database involves a database connection and I think you are looking for a connection to an external backend database, correct?  This cannot be implemented as it involves a server side solution, out of Jotform servers. An alternative would be to get a Jotform application license to deploy it in that way, please check that link for further details
