    Multiple select for image radio buttons

    Asked by mrborry on December 09, 2014 at 08:40 AM

    Hi Jotform,

    I'm happy with the functionality of my form, however it has one limitation. I want the user to be able to be able to select multiple products, as opposed to just one. Please can you advise how to work around this limitation.

    I contemplated using the checkbox but I need the pictures to show the user exactly what they are buying


    Kind regards

    Radio Button is for single selection only. If you want multiple selections, use the Checkbox type instead.

    Thats great, thanks.

    I still have the issue of performing the calculations if multiple items are selected



    I've cloned the form for editing purposes:

    This is because there's no actual formula or calculation stated on the checkboxes. Your calculation just inserts value of checkboxes into a field but does not "Add" them by default, rather they "Append" them.

    What you need is to assign values on each checkbox and store them on a input field, from there you can use those fields to perform a calculation.

    I've cloned your form for editing purposes, you can check it here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43427380144956. If the checkboxes add as you expected, you can clone it to see the settings.

    Please note that I have not applied the whole formula that you have, just the addition of checkbox values.

    Let me know if you need more assistance on this.

    Thank you.
