    Radio Button with long description

    Asked by riatech on October 30, 2012 at 12:00 AM

    Dear sirs,

    Is there any way to create radio button or check box, and each of the button have long description.

    Is useful for me to let the user read the details, before choose any option.

    Please refer to ther screenshot. Thank you

    Hello riatech.  The technique lies by using <br /> tags for creating every new line.

    Example:

    When inserting field values in your options, every new line created will be equivalent to one radio button value. Something like this will result to three radio options:

    This is radio button value 1
    - This is a description for radio button 1
    - This is another description for radio button 1

    But if you try it like this:

    This is radio button value 1<br />- This is a description for radio button 1<br />- This is another description for radio button 1

    This will result to just one option.

    So, make sure to not press the 'enter' key when adding a description to prevent creating a new option value.

    Please let us know if you need further clarification on this matter.

    Ok. Finally, i can do it.

    i have to edit it through 'option', rather than 'properties'. If i edit throught properties, the format will change.

    Thanks!
