    Can I limit the number of times a selection is made?

    Asked by aturman on March 14, 2016 at 01:48 PM

    For example: if I have the option of choosing A or B. Can I limit the number of times "A" is chosen?

    As a result, the person filling out/making the selection will not be able to click on "A"


    Thank you

    Basically what I understand is that you want to allow selection for either 'A' or 'B' not both and limit the number of selections for 'A'. Correct me if I'm wrong.  

    If you wanted to narrow person's choice as you stated above to one selection (A or B) you would use Dropdowns or Radio buttons. But I cannot reproduce a situation within a form where a user will have only one option and that option itself is limited to certain amount of selections.

    Can you provide us with a scenario where you would need such behavior please?
