    I've been using the productpr format for pages that have a pulldown of product choices, as well as a radio button to choose flavor for each item. This page also allows customers to add who they are sending that item to.

    On this new dressings page I need to allow them to select several flavors for one item. This page has 3 dressings. They can order 2 or 3 dressings (prices are shown as either 2 for $x or 3 for $y) so I need them to be able to select 1,2 or 3 flavors and have that apply to the one pulldown item. Is there a way to do that?

    Maybe the simplest way is to ask them to type their choices into a text box?

    Why not use checkboxes or a multiple selection dropdown list?

    Fast turnaround, but I do charge :)

    GT... what about hidden divisions that changed how many of the groups of choices showed depending on the qty they picked? I thought I remembered you having something like that.

    Yes Debbie there is this method:

    As there are in this requirement, only 1, 2 or 3 flavors to be selected, I thought the simplest method for the designer and the buyer, was either to use checkboxes or a multiple selection dropdown list.
