    Working on job application form and when working on the job history section I find I am in need of something a lot like the Configurable List Widget but would really like something that displays the questions in multi-rows and labels next to the fields instead of multi-columns. I guess it would be something like combining Configurable List Widget and Multiple Text Fields Widget into a single widget. This would be very useful in collecting job history without having to hardcode the max number of job history information that can be entered.

    Hi,

    How about the dynamic text box widget? Text boxes appears in rows not in column. It has only 1 input type though which is the text box. You can try the following.

    Here's a good one too,

    Thanks!

    I do those widgets to answer the what languages do you speak questions I have, but that isn't exactly what I am looking for in this case.

    This is what I am trying to achieve, as seen in the image below. Where I would create what is in section 1. and then with a click of a 'add' button it would add section 2. and so forth until all work history had been documented. I could hard code a specific number of sections to answer these questions and only display the next section using a condition statement, but trying to make it variable so that there isn't a hard coded max number of sections for work history, but rather dynamic. Configurable List Widget would work great in this case if there wasn't so many questions per section.

    My apologies and thank you for the clarification and for providing a screenshot.

    Looking at your screenshot, I think I found the right widget that displays in that manner.

    Check this out: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/narrative_fields

    You can create as many as narrative fields you want in your form and then apply conditions to show/hide them depending on the numbers required.

    Hope this helps! :)
