    Feature request: Lightbox widget to display information within the form.

    Asked by CenterforSalesExcellence on September 29, 2014 at 03:06 PM


    I am looking for lightbox widget that can display html. Here is what I am trying to do. I would like to have info icon that user can select. Once it is selected, it will then pops up a lightbox to display all the instructions for that form section. So far I am using conditional to achieve that. But would like to know if there is a lightbox widget or any widgets that can achieve the same purpose? Thanks in advance.

    As far as I know, we do not have any widget that can be used in that way. The only thing that I can think of is the Hover Text option, it works on a per field basis and can accept HTML.

    Are you looking for something like the info lighboxes that can be set individually per fields? Is this supposed to be clicked or just hovered? If there are any other requirements please let us know. 

    We will raise a feature request ticket once we have more information on this.

    Thank you for your replies.

    @Mike_T: You are right! I am actually looking for info lightboxes but not necessarily per fields. I am building a form that are multiple sections across multiple pages. And I want to put in instructions for each section, and one of ways that I can think of is info lightbox. Currently my solution is using conditional statements. I really appreciate if you can leverage this to the developer.

    Hello CenterforSalesExcellence,

    I am sending a feature request to our back end team to add a lightbox window kind of feature to add within a form.

    Please be noted that creating a feature request does not ensure you that the feature will get implemented. It completely depends upon the feasibility and priority of our back end team.

    We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!
