    Changing the text of new entries in Configurable list widget

    Asked by pagewalker on May 27, 2016 at 03:03 PM

    Hello Jotform Support,

     

    I'm trying to use the configurable list widget for both a checkbox and a quantity box on the same line.

     

    I want the values to be different where it says 18" Stakes Bundle of 50..

    How might I go about doing this?

     

    Thank you!!

    Configurable List widget will always repeat the same values, so it would not be possible to set things in the same manner as you would other fields.

    Having that said, it would be possible to change the look through the CSS code, however it is important to note that the same would not be applied on the emails or reports, so you would always see different values, and same text.

    For example, if we change it to have:

    1. Vanilla
    2. Chocolate

    shown on the form and you order 1 and 2 (in quantities) as the order on the form and your original text is Vanilla, your email would state:

    Vanilla 1
    Vanilla 2

    For that reason I would suggest using some other field and especially if you are going to use quantity in some calculations - since configurable list widget can not be accessed through conditions in the same manner as other fields can.
