    Select the radio button of a matrix grid by clicking anywhere in the cell

    Asked by behham on March 19, 2014 at 11:11 AM

    I have a matrix with several lines and radio buttons in the cells. Right now the radio button is only selectable if you click directly on the radio button element. Is it possible to select the radio button by clicking anywhere in the containing cell?

    Unfortunately, that is not possible in our form builder. I think that is achievable using your form source codes: How to Get Form Source Codes then by adding a custom script that would select the radio button when the each cell area is click.

    Let us know if you want this method and I'll do my best to come up for an example using Jotform Form. If possible, I would want to use your final form.

    We have created a widget that can now do that - select multiple cells in a preconfigured grid on a form and submit the data:


    Please give it a try and let us know what limitations or challenges you experience.
