    Condition between radio button and check box, limiting the amount of selections.

    Asked by albumdefesta on April 13, 2011 at 11:10 AM

    Hi everyone. I have a doubt. There is a possibility of a condition among the radio buttons and check boxes that limit the amount of selections that the user can do?
    - If user chooses the option 1 on the radio button "x", he can select up to two options in the check box, "y".
    - If user choose option 2 on the radio button "x" he can select up to three options in check box, "y".
    - If user choose option 3 on the radio button "x" he can select up to four options in the check box, "y".

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Mauricio,

    This cannot be done under the Form Builder because it is not possible to limit the number of selections in a checkbox field.

    A workaround I can suggest to you is to use drop-downs instead of a checkbox. Let the number of options you'd want them to have be the number of dropdowns that will appear (via conditions) once they selected an option from the radio button above.

    Here is an Example Form which I created, in order to demonstrate my workaround. Feel free to clone it for your own use or inspect the elements and conditions I applied on that form.

    More information about cloning forms in this page.

    Hope this answer helps.
