Field Type – Checkbox
Simple Checkboxes
Required Checkboxes *
This checkbox requires a value. If no value provided, there will be a validation error message (customizable). The default “required field indicator” is * (customizable).
Read-only Checkboxes
This is a read-only checkbox. User can’t choose any options here. However, options can be set indirectly using “Default Value” in field settings or programmatically.
Checkboxes with “Other” option
The “Other” option allows the users to provide an option which is not listed in a checkbox. Upon selecting the “Other” option, a text field shows up where the user can type the new option.
Checkboxes with limited selection
This checkbox allows a maximum of 2 options
Checkboxes with two columns layout
Formidable supports One column (default), Two columns, Three columns, Four columns, and Inline Options.
Checkboxes with “Inline Options” layout
Checkboxes with default options
Checkboxes with default “Other” option
Note: When “Other” option is set as the default value, another option can’t be selected
Checkboxes with scroll box
The scroll box is useful when there are many options in the checkbox. Use “frm_scroll_box” class in the “CSS Layout Classes” settings to enable scroll box.
This is checkbox field label *
This is used to request the user to confirm something before submitting the form. E.g. Accepting terms and conditions during registration.
Enabling “Use separate values” is recommended since the single option label could be large and styled. A separate value like “yes” will avoid storing the option label in the entry.
Checkbox field with inline field label and single no label option and separate value
This is another way of implementing confirmation checkbox except checkbox comes after the text. Since the option label is empty, the separate value must be set, otherwise, it will be auto-selected.
