    Customize Flat Checkbox Widget

    Asked by criterions on June 19, 2015 at 09:12 AM

    Using custom CSS is it possible to style individual items within the Flat Checkbox widget. In other words, I I have 3 items:


    Item 1
    Item 2
    Item 3

    Can I have 'Item 2' appear in a different color text, for example.


    Also, is there a way to configure the number of columns for the widget. So instead of having a single column of 10 items, I want 2 columns of 5.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm checking your forms, and I see a check box on it. I would recommend using the default check box instead. You can use the Form Designer Tool to design it the same way with the Flat Checkbox widget.

    1. Click the default check box, and add "2" in the number of columns to have them separated evenly.


    2. Open your "Form Designer" tool, click the check boxes and design it there.


    You can still use the Flat Checkbox, but the default checkbox gives you more options and customization. 

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you.
