    Feature Request: Adding Fields Vertically on Configurable List Widget

    Asked by The_Mighty_Optiq on February 17, 2015 at 01:44 AM

    Hi, I'm having some trouble getting the Configurable List Widget to work the way I want it to.  Here's a link to an example.

    http://form.jotform.us/form/50471095333148

     

    The first widget is the actual criteria I'll be using.  The second one under it is the demo I played with to get it to show up how I want it, aside from how the dropdown options are WAY beneath their titles.  Another thing I noticed is when you duplicate everything it just duplicates the fields and not the titles.  Is there a way to get it to duplicate the titles as well?

     

    The goal here is to provide my clients with a way to input as many profiles as they need to represent each of their key types of customers.  If possible I'd like to achieve this with a widget rather than using conditions to hide 10-20 duplicates of an entire section which will bogg up people's bandwidth.  Can someone help with this?  Thanks in advance. :)

    Hello The_Mighty_Optiq,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you want to add fields placed top to down instead of left to right in configurable list widget?

    As far as duplicating the field labels is concerned, I am not sure but it may be possible to achieve this through custom css code but I am not too sure. 

    Please explain your first requirement a bit more in detail and we will surely try to help you.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Yes Ashwin that's exactly what I want to do, make everything vertical.  The only part I want to go horizontally is the dropdown menus.  I figured having them in rows or 3 or 4 would be ideal.  Does this help explain it better?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure if we can use CSS to position it, because from what I understand, you would like to add a block of fields, instead of adding them row by row or as one line. The problem is that the widget is designed as a table, so it has the Table Headers for each column, then the fields as a row.

    We'll try to find a way to position it in a vertical way using CSS, but can't guarantee that we release a working one immediately. I also opened a feature request ticket so that our developers can check if they can make adjustments on this widget, but I can't give an estimated time if this will be considered and implemented. We'll update you immediately on this thread when we hear any news.

    Kind regards.

    ok cool thanks... hopefully there's something you guys can do... are there any other widgets that allow you to duplicate things that might do what I'm trying to do?

    Hello The_Mighty_Optiq,

    My colleague have already sent a feature request to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them.

    Unfortunately, there is no other widgets available to add fields vertically. Let me try and see if there is any workaround available for this, I will get back to you if I find any solution. 

    For now, I would suggest you to manually add form field in your form and show / hide them by adding conditions in your form.

    Thank you!
