    Create sub-fields of different types

    Asked by Aessence on August 16, 2016 at 08:23 AM


    I's like to create a field on a new-user sign-up form in the form of [username] @ [mail-domain] where the [username] sub-field is a textbox and the [main-domain] sub-field is a dropdown list.

    It should me like the "Full name" grouped fields, but then where "lastname" would be a dropdown type...

    Using two separate fields doesn't look so good, and I'd like to position them together with the @ between the fields.

    It is actually a popular field-format/group. Especially if you leave out the "@" in between the sub-fields and just add it to the values of the dropdown-list, you can use it for many more "something of/on/at something" fields...

    Is there a way for me to create this? I'm not a css-wizard, but can probably follow technical instructions...

    Thanks for the assist,

    I found the "Configurable List" widget, which lets me do pretty much what I want (and more).

    I have checked your form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/62281876562969 and I can see you've already added the Configurable List widget.

    Based on what you've mentioned, that widget is the one that will help you to achieve what you want, as you already mentioned. 

    Also, I would like to suggest you to check our other widgets that will help you to get multiple entries on your form, here is the link: https://widgets.jotform.com/category/multiple_entries 

    We can also help you to display fields inline and customize it with CSS code if you need, this will work if you need, for example, a field with one entry only, but have another field right after this (inline) which allows multiple entries.

    However, take a look to the widgets and let us know if you need help, we will be glad to assist you.
