    Create multiple input fields within the same line item..

    Asked by Sladestyle on February 24, 2012 at 05:43 PM

    I have a form that has a field which will need a specific string of values.  Sort of like a credit card (but not a credit card).

    Is it possible to have 1 field be formatted something like this:

    Deal ID/Key:           ABC12 - DE - FG - 34 - HI56

    The "-" would be great visually but not necesary.  Each set of letter/numbers would be their own input field but under the same Line item.

    Also, ideally if I could set the validation of each input box such as "box 1=alpha/numeric"; box 2="alphabetic"; "box 3=.....etc.


    I know jotform shows this function with things like Phone Number, Full Name, Dates...etc.

    Is it possible?

    Thank you!

    Hi Slade,

    Yes that's possible with JotForm. First, you need to shrink fields to align them on the same line. Here's a guide on how to shrink fields. http://www.jotform.com/help/90-How-to-Position-Form-Fields-on-the-Same-Line

    And with the use of Custom CSS Injection, you can hide those labels above your form textbox. Please use this code.



    Here's a quick video guide for this: http://idarktech.com/jotform/video/shrink_fields_ids.html

    Hope this helps. Just feel free to let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you so much!
