How to include a custom form field

  1. Hello,

    I have a requirement for collecting certain kind of data.

    Ex: Dimensions: LxBxW

    This means that there would be 3 textboxes that accepts integers from 0 - 9 but all of this needs to be in one field.

    Is there a way to set this up?

    Thanks.

  2. You would have to get creative and use CSS to float the fields side by side.

    - I would recommend using top labels (not side labels) for the form settings
    - Give the Length field a Field label of "Dimensions" and a Description of "Length"
    - For the next two fields leave the Field Label blank (but give them an Admin Label so they have a label in the Admin) and then fill in the description with the measurement type.
    - Now you will need to use CSS to float the fields side by side and style them.
    - Each of the fields should be a Number field so it is numeric.

    This requires CSS knowledge to implement properly. Here is a post that discusses floating fields side by side:

    The end result would be it would look like one field when it is actually 3.
