    Drop down box with states....

    Asked by PromoStaffer on June 13, 2011

    I am adding a drop down box with states to a form. It will only let the user select one... How can it be changed to a multistate select form. I need the user to be able to select more than one state from the drop down box... The form is not on a web page yet because I can't use it until I figure this out...

    Hi PromoStaffer

    Thanks for asking. Generally, it is not a good idea to use multi-select drop downs in a form. On the other hand, check boxes are tailor made for such purposes. However, a solution is provided by Aytekin in this forum thread.

    Should you require clarification on anything, please don't hesitate to ask. Our team will be glad to assist where we can.
