    Widget similar to "Short Scrollable Terms" where user is required to scroll to bottom.

    Asked by ryanridgway on October 24, 2015 at 10:49 PM

    Hey everybody, does anyone know of a good widget to use to create a "scrolling" text box that has our terms & conditions and application agreement contained within it, prior to when a person hit's submit? Furthermore, if there's a way for them to be *required to scroll to the bottom of it before submitting?

    We have a couple new partners that are requesting this.

    If there's not a pre-built widget, I'd be interested in custom code to make this happen.

    Thanks a bunch! - Ryan

    P.S. What I mean by "scrolling" is that it will only take up a small amount of space i.e. 3-4 inches on a screen and gives the user ability to scroll to bottom - as opposed to being the entire body of text (5-6 pages total) just copy/pasted into the form.

    agreement OR a create scroll custom code thanks

    Hello Ryan,

    You may like to take a look at our "Short Scrollable Terms" widget and see if that fits into your requirement. It will allow you to add a scrollable field in your form where you can copy and paste your T&C. Please be noted that this will not make it required for the user to scroll to bottom.

    Let me send a feature request to our back end team to create an scrollable T&C widget which is required to scroll to bottom. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them.

    Thank you!

    That worked great, thanks JotForm support!

    Quick question, would there be a way for a non-coder (myself) to implement custom CSS into that widget wizard/setup to add in spaces or bold header font for each section within the terms? Right now, it's all just single line with no spacing between each section.

    Thanks - Ryan

    You can now require the user to read the all the text before they can proceed/submit the form: 

    Give it a try - let us know.
