I need to create a row that contain 9 text fields. The mutlifield allows only 6. Is there a workaround for this?

Hi jjpelman,

Please set the number to 6 or 2, does it divide the space equally or not ?

Best regards,
Max

Thanks, Max. I am using Multifield in many spots using 2 and 3, and yes they are evenly split.

But the max number of fields is 6 and I need 9. Please see screen shot of old form that was custom imported into V4.

Hi jjspelman,

I mean you can add any number of fields to the multi field area, say 9, and set the area settings to 2 fields, but it would still display 9 fields evenly divided.

Best regards,

I'm not certain that would work for this scenario. If you have a look at the screenshot above (I built this form with HTML and tables and imported into V4), i need to have the labels above and the row to be horizontal.

Is there a way to use a scrolling table so it will work on mobile devices (not that I think anyone would complete this form on a phone)?

I was also thinking about using the Repeater so the user can add a row if they have more items to add to the form. So essentially show only the first row, and let them add rows when necessary. But if I have to use a table that probably won't be happeneing.

Hi jjspelman,

You can use the same custom code in v6, and use the repeater to provide the multiplication feature, but for this to work, only the first row should be inside the multiplier, but not the table header.

Best regards,

OK, thanks, I will give that a try.
