    Is it possible to create sub categories/menus with ddslick dropdown widget?

    Asked by Tankeroni on June 27, 2016 at 01:52 PM
    If I plan on having a large listings with this widget, so I am hoping it is possible to make it more user friendly.

    So, for example, can I make sub categories/menus within it, like choices 1-10, 11-20, etc. so that the user can browse just one, and then when they go to open the other, the previous one closes?

    I am looking for ways to save space and be efficient, so instead of having dozens of different dropdown widgets that the user will not be happy managing, I am hoping to have ways to do it with one.


    Thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to create sub-categories/menus with ddslick dropdown widget. Though it may be possible to display one of the items are the group header, it displays all the items provided in the widget. An alternative solution can be having separate widgets for each group/category in the form.

    We have another widget that can display the dropdown items as grouped values. However, it doesn't support to display images before the item name. You may take a look at the widget using the link below:
