    Checkbox in dropdown widget - I need to change the [Choose One] Text

    Asked by govacationguru on May 16, 2014 at 11:58 AM


    There are a few different widgets that I need assistance with.  One is check box in drop down.  The reason I chose this widget is that it allows mutiple choices.  But the preset field says CHOOSE ONE.  I cannot figure out how to change it.  

    Please advise.

    Thank you,

    Irene Sauger

    The text "Choose One" Cannot currenlty be changed with the widget settings/properties.

    I have asked our developers to advice, and we shall update you on this thread on any developments.

    I've added "Default text" param which allows you to set custom text on dropdown. If it doesn't show in settings of existing widget, try to look at properties -> show properties. If it also doesn't work, the last solution will be to remove widget and add it again.

    The feature has now been implemented on a new widget called the Quantity Gift Registry

    Please take a look and advice us if you experience any limitations or difficulties.
