    Having long text as an option for a radio button

    Asked by 2ezy on April 23, 2013 at 05:54 AM

    Hi I have tried a radio button field with some long text as the options for them. The text does not seam to
    drop to the next line in the form even when using shift/enter or just enter.

    So my question is how do I get the longish text option next to each radio button to go onto the next line
    and secondly how do I get that second line to start under the first lines postion.

    The attached screenshot is what I am trying to achieve.

    Thanks Mark

    You can accomplish nextline option by adding
    between the sentence.

    Ok thanks. But how do I get the start of each new line to line up with the one above it as in my screenshot above.

    Also inyour example the lable has now gone above the radio button options rather than staying on the left hand side.

    That also happens with me even though I have selected lable align left.

    If you are using the Options to add this in you can use the following html code in conjunction with the linebreak " <br> ". You can see a live demo of this form I've created for you by clicking here. If you don't like the look of it still though, we can try to figure out something else instead.


    Html Space Code:

    &nbsp; (use this in a row adding a few if necessary to adjust the spacing manually)
