Extra: Display options in the Choice field

You have various options for displaying the different choices in the form

You can display the options stored in a Choice field in 3 different ways.


The desired value is selected from a drop-down menu.

  • There is a default option, which can be placed at the top of the selection list

  • There are more than 7 entries (then it’s best to sort them alphabetically)

  • The options do not need to be compared

  • A “More” or “Other” option is needed

Radio Buttons

All options are visible. Simply click on the desired value.

  • All options should be visible at a glance

  • When there are 5 or less choices

  • It should be possible to compare the options

  • It should be possible to quickly select them


In our example this would probably not be the best choice, as there are 4 options. Nevertheless, we would like to show it to you so that you can get a better idea as to how the different display options compare.

  • There are up to 3 options

  • There is a default option

  • It should be possible to toggle quickly between 2 simple options like On and Off (if you need only Yes and No, we recommend the Yes / No field).
