    Unfortunately you can not the options from there. You need to change them in Widget Settings.

    Thank's for your answer, I want to know if it's valide for all JotForm components or only for widgets, I mean that if I use the basic components will I be able to customise the value of the component in the source code and to use data from a data base?

    Widgets as I know of has different java script codes with the form elements. You have to edit the whole javascript to edit the widgets.Yes, I think the Form elements/basic components can be customize to use data from a database.

    You just need to target the correct html and add either java scripts or PHP to connect your database.

    Here is a sample source code of a checkbox form element.

    Hope this information helps.
