    How can i make checkboxes in the same row?

    Asked by emu on October 06, 2011 at 01:37 PM

    Hi everybody!

    I have a question and i would really appreciate if you could help me. I have a form with many checkboxes and i wanted to split them to many columns. But when I do it then at least the first one looks like it is in another row and it is not matching to the others.

    <iframe allowtransparency="true" src="//www.jotform.com/form/12730345228?nojump" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:709px; border:none;" scrolling="no">
    </iframe>

    in this frame, the checkboxes should be spread to three columns! But i first created the checkboxes and then i changed it to three columns, if you first change to three columns and then put in the boxes it works better, but the first one remains like this.

    So i need help pleeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssseeeeeeeee :)

    Best Regards

    Hi eMu,

    Thank you for sharing your concern with us. Will it be possible for you to increase the width of your form? I cloned your form and tried to increase the form's overall width to 550px and the options are now spread into three columns. You may view the cloned version of your form here -  http://www.jotform.com/form/12730345228

    Hope this information will be helpful for you. Thank you and enjoy using JotForm!

    Best regards,
    Allan

    hi,

    thanks for fast reply, but it is not working, look at this form for example:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="//form.jotform.com/jsform/12804842234"></script>

    If you try to generate a new checkbox field and put the columns to 3, then unfortunately it looks like in the form above with the original width. I can not bring them to one row :( heeeeeeeeeeeeelp

    best Regards

    Hello eMu,

    I tried using checkboxes and it seems to spread fine.  Although with radio buttons, I was able to replicate your issue about with the spread columns set to three, it went just adding on the 1st column.

    This is because your label align is set to left and then when adding another option, it seems trying to recognize the width occupied by the label title, and the condition that the columns are set to three.  Setting your label align to top will fix it.

    If I'm misunderstanding your issue, please let us know.

    Thanks,

    Liyam

    hi,

    i tried everything with these checkboxes but it is not working, i set the label first to top and split the coloumns -> same result, i increased the number of options to 6 options and then set the columns to three, then it is even reacting stranger and the number of columns is 4 instead of three, if you could do it, could you send me the link with the form?

    best Regards

    Hi eMu,

    Is it ok with you if you make the size of the text in the radio button and check box options smaller? If this is fine, please insert the highlighted code into the Options button of the toolbar as a workaround:

    Please try and let us know how it goes. 

    Thank you,
    Allan
