    How can I add a multiple selection (not checkbox) to the configurable list widget?

    Asked by mecglobal on April 15, 2016 at 04:23 AM

    Hi, how can I add a multiple selection like this widget http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/multiple_selection ? Because I have a lot of items and it's too long and unclear with the checkbox. Thank you in advance for your answer.

    In the Form Builder, go to the Widgets section. Please type "Multiple" in the search box. After that, you just need to drag or click the widget to the work space.

    Thank you, I got it. But can I include this widget in another widget (configurable list) ? Indeed, I have too many items to use a checkbox. I would like to use this multiple selection in the table that I've created with the configurable list.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to add a widget to Configurable List widget. You can only use existing check box feature in the Configurable List widget. Here's a guide: How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget

    Thank you for understanding.
