    I think this could be achieved by using the Configurable List widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/configurable_list

    You will be able to add a check box and a date input on the same line, here is a guide to configure the widget on your form: http://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget

    Hope this helps.

    I need it to display like below: (or it can go across whichever way works). The days of the week would be check boxes and the area beside them need to be textboxes.


    Monday           [Textbox]

    Tuesday          [Textbox]

    Wednesday      [Textbox]

    Thursday         [Textbox]

    Friday             [Textbox]

    Saturday         [Textbox]

    Sunday           [Textbox]

    I believe what you wanted is the same as what my colleague, Ben, have explained on this thread, Can-we-combine-checkbox-with-a-textbox.  However, that was done without the help of the Configurable List widget.

    If you still want to use the Configurable List widget, please check this form that I have created: https://form.jotform.com/60774388744974

    Please feel free to clone it and inspect the General tab and the Custom CSS tab of the Configurable List widget on the form.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
