    survey tool slider

    Asked by DannyT on February 10, 2012 at 06:28 AM


    I want to use the Survey Tool "Slider" with a negative argument, from -20 till +20.

    Is it possible?

    Hi Danny,

    Sorry to say but it's not currently possible with JotForm. However, you can use the Sninner tool which allows you to setup negative values, it's still under Survey tools.

    I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have further questions. Thank you so much!

    at my search to an answere over nevative sliders, i found this alternative, but the spinner tool isn´t working with negative numbers, too :-(

    The creasy situation is: In the eding fields of Form this function ist ok, in the formpreview or after download the error cames.

    When i configure the "min value" to under zero, "-25" for example an activate the negative option, i can only switch at numbers over 26, i can´t switch to numbers under 25 and absolute no under 0 to -25.

    (only in finish form, at preview or after download, in the editor its working!)

    After my check, the "min value" is change to "false" :-((

    I need any button/slider ...with the user can change an input from -25 to (+) 25. Can jotform pimp the slider to negatives values ( -25 ....... 0 ....... 25) ore repare the spinner?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi, the negative value for the 'slider' field is not possible using the JotForm builder. It does not have the "allowNegative" property that the spinner have.

    I could have made your request forwarded to our developer team as a feature request, but since this original thread was actually closed already, I could not.
