Form builder multi-column checkbox list

  • Form builder multi-column checkbox list
  • I have tried to search the forums and PITs and do not see anything on this so please excuse me if I am adding a duplicate suggestion.  I did submit this as a suggestion on PIT too.

    The rendering of checkboxes when using two or three column is less than ideal.  It renders the checkboxes inline separating the rows by a <br /> tag.  This makes it harder than it needs to be to line up each columns checkboxes instead of letting them stagger as they currently do.

    I would suggest rendering each "column" of checkboxes into a wrapper class that designers can easily style to their liking in order to set custom margins and line-height.

  • Hello Stacey,

    If you have submitted this suggestion (feature request) on PITS than we will review it and if it is not a  duplicate one we will add it to our system and I hope that we will be able to implement it soon.

    Thank you for your suggestion.

  • Thank you Stefani

    I decided to take another look at the output and came up with this in the meantime.  I wrapped the form widget with a class to keep from any potential admin dialog issues.

    .multi-column .sfCheckListBox.sfFieldWrp input[type="checkbox"] + label
        display: inline-block;
        min-width: 200px;
