    Mixing Input Types on Matrix Tables

    Asked by kbreenbondie on January 05, 2016 at 01:46 PM

    I have a few matrix tables that I'd like to mix input types. I'd like to have 4 columns, the first column being an open text field, then next two columns a dropdown of Color or B/W, then the last column an open text field.

     

    Is this possible? Thank you.

    Unfortunately it is currently not possibe to have mixed input types using the Matrix table field.

    You will have to use multiple Matrix table field instead that have different input type, and then just position them side by side to make them appear like Matrix table with different input type.

    Alternatively, you may want to check also the Configurable List Widget.

    It has mixed input type. You can check the demo form also http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43222928180957?
