    Is there a widget I can attach to my JotForm, which will allow me enter names of companies, industries, etc....(data), and have them listed within the drop-down box in alphabetical order?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Unfortunately there is no sort option within the properties of the Dropdown list field. So the options you add on the list will only be sorted manually when you add the options.

    Thanks Jonathan,

    So, they appear as I list them I presume?

    Crazy question, but can I add more than one drop-down box per JotForm?

    That is correct. Dropdown options appears as you list them.

    Yes you can add multiple dropdown questions per form. There is no limitation on how many dropdown fields you can add in your form.

    That is what I figured.

    Thanks for the information and enjoy the day.
