    Thank you Victor!

    I am creating a form for prehospital emergency consultants who consult with on-scene paramedics and doctors about serious cases. At the end of the 12 hour shift, the consultant will make a report about the calls (usually 5-15 calls).

    First he/she needs to fill his name, date and the number & type of calls. Then he adds each calls of with the following subinformations:

    - callers ID (i.e station name) - ideally a dropdown menu

    - short report of the case - free text

    - advices given to the crew - ideally a checkbox list

    I am looking for some kind of loop widget, that makes this possible. Infinite List would be great, but I would like to use other type of basic fields (other then free text) during each loop.
