    Convert checkbox options into buttons.

    Asked by jfullwiler2 on May 23, 2016 at 02:09 AM


      I am making a form as a survey tool at an event. We will be using an ipad to move around and ask people easy. Therefore I am making a checkbox option, however since its an ipad we would like a more mobile-friendly way to display the boxes, therefore turning the checkboxes into buttons. Is this possible


    It would also be much easier if the button highlighted once it was pressed to confirm it is selected.


    Please see attached picture for reference.

    We have several widgets that you can use to have a checkbox that appears like a button. Here's a Button Checkbox widget that you can use. They appear as buttons, and they also highlight when selected.

    You can check out this demo form to see it in action: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50051528183954?
