    Looking for Dynamic Matrix with other fields than text.

    Asked by lmcphers on February 01, 2014 at 07:39 PM

    Hi, I love the dynamic matrix option.  However, I am in need of a dynamic matrix that gives you the ability to choose the type of field that youare using.  


    Example:  I would like to be able to make a matrix that includes:

    Date - Expandable Text (or Paragraph) - Drop Down Menu - Check Box


    That also has the ability to add extra lines on form filler demand.

    Unfortunatelly, these are not available on the form fields yet.

    The widgets Dynamic Fields and Matrix Dynamique can only use Textbox input type.

    A workaround I can suggest you may want to look at is


    You can dynamically show/hide multiple input type options in the form using Condition Logic. The only limitation on this method is, the available options will depend on the number of rules/condition you have setup. Meaning, the form user itself will not be able to dictate how many times the inputs they want to have.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    I'm still fairly new here and this is my first Forum Request...

    I have exactly the Same Question and creating multiple fields with conditions is way too time consuming.

    It's been almost 4 months since the original request above. Is there any update on this? or alternatively, is there an SDK or Method for creating custom Widgets for personal use or even for sharing?
