    I want to add a further check boxes and or text field next to a check box

    Asked by watertightp on February 25, 2016 at 04:10 PM


    I'm trying to find a way to add a text field next to a check box. ie when you select the check box you then have to fill in a text field or select multiple options. 

    EG health and safety, select risk that is present, then be able to write or select multiple pre determined options for mitigating the risk


    check / Injury to public / _ Fence off _ Hazard Board Displayed _ Visitors to be inducted

    some options may require text field instead

    Hi Rod,

    There is actually option for Checkbox field to Allow Other option which is a Textbox input.

    Or if you require a far more advance mixed field type, you can check the Configurable List widget. This widget allows mixed type of fields (i.e. Checkbox and Textbox)

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further help.
