There are different types of fields you can choose for the row.

Radio, Combo Box and Multi Select

These three types of fields allow you to create options so you can select predefined values from the radio box or select drop down box. To use these fields, in the data area, please fill in this format:

value-1:title-1;value-2:title-2; value-3:title-3

For example, if you would like to show a radio box with three options: Yes, No and N/A, where the value of these options are: [Y], [N] and [NA], please enter the following:

[Y]:Yes;[N]:No;[NA]:N/A

We also provides a trick here, when the values is [Y], in the frontend, this value will be automatically changed to a TICK image, while it will be changed to a CROSS image if the value is [N].
