    Dropdown button

    Asked by lumidan on December 03, 2011 at 05:21 AM


    I use Jotform approximately 1 year. I think it is a very good tool and I want to congratulate you on this.

    I need some option in my form and I want to ask you if I can put into practice what they want.
    I use a dropdown button that are written variations. Because these options may change over time,
    I need a button in form, where the person who will complete the form can introduce new names to display automatically in dropdown. Is this possible?
    Thank you very much.

    Although there is no option in the form builder to allow end users to add entries to drop down selectors, if a radio button field were substituted for the "Sursa Comenzii" drop down, you would be able to include a text box where users could type their own entries:

    However, since radio button and drop down selectors have the same functionality, which is to say that they allow users to choose only a single item, I will submit a ticket to our Tier 2 team requesting that an "Allow Other" button be added to the toolbox for drop downs as well.
