Checkbox using single column layout problem...

Checkbox using single column layout problem... - RESOLVED

I posted a question about this before but I think it may have gotten dilluted by asking several other questions, so let me give it a try again.

I have a single column FB form for registering a user. Towards the end of the form and in the last of three fieldsets, I have a person click a checkbox that indicates they agree to terms and conditions. This was done in FB's Edit Design mode where the checkbox resides on a line with its own set where I added some text. Following the checkbox line I have another line that contains a captcha, then another line asking a security question.

The problem is that the checkbox does not appear to the left of the "I agree that:" line of text, but instead, appears to the right of the text as though it's an input field that is aligned with all the other input fields that appear to the right of a label.

Is there a way to get the checkbox to the left of the label "I agree that:" text instead of to the right where it appears now? In normal XHTML, you would simply provide the checkbox input followed by a label and the checkbox would appear to the left since that's the order it appears in the page code. Can't seem to figure out how to make this happen

thanks,

steve

If you change the checkbox to use a checkbox group, you can change the label placement in the edit design dialog. Here are some steps to do this:
Choose the Form elements from the drop down list.
Choose Checkbox Group from the drop down list that appears after choosing form elements.
At the bottom left of the dialog box there is an option for Label placement which you can change to right and that will put the text label on the right instead of the left.

I'll give that a try. By the way Jimmy, is there some way to let others know a question or issue is considered resolved when we find an answer that works? just curious.

OK, I got it to work. Question though, I don't, but if I did have other checkbox groups I assume they would all have their labels to the right? Is there no way to selectively choose which side the labels will appear on for a checkbox group or is the setting for all checkbox groups?

Here is what I did to fix this issue:

1. Used Edit Form to change from a checkbox to a checkbox group. Deleted the label that read "I agree that:" Clicked the Edit icon by the Checkbox Group "Type" drop-down. Clicked Add, and for the label I entered "I agree that:" Left the value alone.
2. Saved all work.
3. Used Form Designer ->Form Elements ->Checkbox Group to change the label position to the right.
4. Clicked Apply and then clicked the preview of the page. Nothing changed. Label was still on the left.
5. Changed the label to the left and clicked Apply with a preview of the form. Label was still on the left.
6. Changed the width of the label to Wide and changed the label position to Right. Clicked Apply and previewed the form. Label was on the right as desired.

So something was going on with the label not showing up after changing its position to the right and clicking Apply. Did the steps above to get it move to the right.

Well, to mark an issue as resolved, you can either edit the first post and add resolved to the title or you can just post back saying that it worked or something.

There is no setting to change just a select number of textboxes to have the label on the right and leave the others on the left.
