    Hello, 

    I am making a form for a client and they wanted to have a checkbox question with fields:

    Secondary
    College/University
    Public
    Independent/Private
    Charter
    Media:

    If I add <input type="text" /> after Media: in options it shows the text box in the form editor but when I preview the form it shows: Media <input type="text" />.

    Is there a way to make this work?

     

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to have multiple fillable option in the checkbox field. The form will not read the html code that is added to the checkbox field, so it will only output it as regular text. You will have to use the "Allow other" option in the field to have an input field in the checkbox.

    A possible workaround would be to add a Matrix field so that you can have a textbox for the media, however, this would require the other options to have a textbox as well.

    You can also try using the Configurable List widget to fulfill your requirement. Simply follow this link: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/configurable_list 

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    I ended up just using conditional logic to display a textbox once the user selects media, thanks anyway!
