    Adding a static grid on my form?

    Asked by CraigJ on December 02, 2014 at 11:53 AM
    2. Have a static grid with the jotform showing the above information, and separately have drop down boxes below the grid to indicate the chosen options.  I can't find a static grid on jotform; they are all blank grids that allow user input.

    Hello CraigJ,

    It seems, this question is in continuation of the following thread:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/468172 

    Can you please explain your requirement a bit more in details? Suppose we create a HTML table and show it in your form, now how do you want to collect the data? I need to find out if user will answer in every cell or how /and what data you want to capture.

    We will wait for your response.


    Thank you!

    Thank you Ashwin.  Assuming option 1 doesn't work (text & radio button), option two would be to have a static matrix; simply data within the form that cannot be changed.  Below the matrix would be drop downs for the user to confirm the column choice and row choice.  The information within the matrix would be locked to the user, and only able to be changed by the form creator as necessary.

    So you mean that you want an option to lock the matrix at the point then if we've understood what you said correctly? As in a way that if the user enables it the fields for the matrix would be disabled?

    Is that what you have intended?

    Correct - the matrix would be for informational purposes only - no input or modification required.

    Okay thanks for confirming that, I just wanted to make sure that I understood you correctly first.

    I think that's a pretty interesting idea although I'm not sure that we have anything to implement of the sort yet. Let me look into this more to see if I can figure out something for it and i'll get back to you about it as soon as possible.
