    To whom it may concern,

    I have created a form but it is missing the option for instance, when a customer adds a car(year make and model), i want him to be able to add another car if needed

    Also is it possible to use an API for the make and model?

    Also next to the VIN i want to add a link on where to find the VIN number

    You may use the configurable list widget to be able to create a new line of field.

    https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/configurable_list

    Here is a guide:https://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget

    Also is it possible to use an API for the make and model?

    We do have an API however, if you wish to add your own API you may try getting the forms full source code and edit the form.

    Also next to the VIN i want to add a link on where to find the VIN number

    You may use the text element to add a link to your form.


    Hope this information helps.

    Hey Richie,

    this is what i would like to have in the configured list and i dont know if possible or how to do it:

    I want it to look like this:

    Column1 Vin # : add file

    Column 2 Dropdown for year, drop down for Car Make, Drop down for Car Model

    Column 3 Milage

    There is no upload feature for the configurable list widget.

    It is not possible to add a column 1 vin#: add file.

    However, if its a text input then it is possible.

    You may add this to your Configurable list>General

    Fields configuration:

    :static: Vin#
    :text:
    :static: Year

    : date : m/d/y : 2000-2022
    :static: Car Make
    : dropdown: General Motors, Ferrari, Nissan, Honda
    :static: Model
    : dropdown: Chevrolet Cruze, Buick LeSabre,Vauxhall Astra
    :static: Milage
    :number:

    Custom CSS:

    .checkbox, .radio {
    margin: 3px 0;
    min-width: 10px;
    }
    input[type=text] {
    height: 25px;
    }
    .col1, .col2, .col3, .col4, .col5, .col6, .col7, .col8, .col9, .col10{
    display: block !important;
    }
    .col10{
    margin-bottom: 50px !important;
    }

    Please give it a try and let us know if you need further assistance.
