Hi,

i would like to use the combobox with the _OTHER_ option. But that doesn't seem to work, is this correct? If i switch to radiobutton then it does work.

Regards,

Per

Hi Per,
Sorry for the delayed response.

Currently the _OTHER_ option only works for radio and checkbox question types.

If you need something like this for a drop down list, here is a potential work around. Add your last option as "Other, please specify". Then have a separate text input question to capture the other text. You can group questions together using the parent item so they appear on the same page. You can also add some fancy javascript to only show that text input question when a particular option is selected on the drop down.

regards

Tim
