    Could you please help me to make drop downs only in some columns?

    Asked by cardstory on March 13, 2012 at 06:34 AM

    Hello! 

    I want to insert a matrix with 4 columns. But I need drop downs only in two of them. Two other columns should be text boxes. Is it possible to change CSS so that this would work?

    @carstory,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to have different types of input fields in a matrix tool. CSS can only define the styling for an element, not change its type.

    Hope this clears your question. Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thanks.

    OK. Thanks!

    And what if after the form is ready and I downlolad the html code, I will change <select> for <input> (name will remain the same) for some columns. Will this collect the data correctly?

    Yes, it should be possible, I tried it before within the Free Text (HTML) tool.
    I modified the source code before I pasted it there. And input field changes functionality.
