    Can you put boxes for the same field alongside each other?

    Asked by bolzanotool on March 20, 2014 at 10:40 PM

    I would like a line that is similar to the name fields or address fields where there is only one title, yet there are several boxes that appear alongside each other or stacked in the same widget. I have tried duplicating the existing ones for name and address but it doesn't seem to let you customize.

    I understand how to resize a field so that two appear on one line. This is not my question, FYI.

    On my page if you go down to the education area I'd like to have the school information more customizable, have degree earned as a yes/no dropdown, etc.

    Hello bolzanotool,

    I am not sure I have understood your question correctly.

    On my page if you go down to the education area I'd like to have the school information more customizable, have degree earned as a yes/no dropdown, etc.

    Can you please elaborate on this further? How exactly you want to place your fields? Please be noted that name / address fields are pre-designed controls which includes several fields. You cannot create controls in form builder by adding multiple form fields but it is possible to achieve something similar look and feel by injecting custom css code to hide the labels / titles of forms fields. They can also be aligned based on your requirement.

    Do get back to us with your requirement and we will surely try to help you achieve it.

    Thank you!

    Not sure what else to tell you. I want the address setup, for example, but I'd like to change the country dropdown to have only Yes/No as options.

    The fields under quick tools are predefined so they can accept very little customization through css code or by editing the form's source code.

    I'm not sure if what you want to achieve is not doable by shrinking and aligning the fields, maybe is this information that is preventing us from answering your needs.

    I created a copy of the form but instead of using the address field I manually inserted text boxes and dropdown menus.

    I also replaced the diploma field to a dropdown:


    You can clone this form if you wish.

    Let us know please if this is a solution for you or if you need further assistance.
