    Is it possible to combine drop down boxes with text boxes the same Matrix Field?

    Asked by Formforstuff on August 05, 2016 at 04:23 AM

    I would like to have the "Store" row as a drop down box if possible just to help speed things along when filling out the form.

    Thanks for the help with the other question. I worked it out following the help you gave me.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to combine dropdown fields with textboxes in the same Matrix field. You can only set them to either a dropdown or textbox, not both.

    A possible workaround I can suggest is to add another matrix field for the Store row. That way, you can have a dropdown for the Store row and a textbox field for the rest.

    Regards.
