Advanced Choices Field Block Overview

Advanced Choices Field block is a feature for more advanced selection options in the form, which can be used instead or additionally to the alternative Checkbox, Select, and Radio fields.

With this block, text, images, or other objects can turn into the object for selection. And now, this block is available for WordPress with the JetFormBuilder plugin.

The Advanced Choices Field block can be found in the Gutenberg block search or by typing the “/” right in the empty spot in the form.

Block Layouts

There are four default layouts available for selection: “Text,” “Images,” “Images with description,” and “Images with controls.” Besides the given layouts, the user can build a custom block by pressing the “Skip” button.

Advanced Choices Field Block Settings

Once the Advanced Choices Field block is added, a panel with the following toolbar controls appears above the block:

  • Transformation button (this block can turn to Conditional Block, Columns, and Group);
  • Elements for controlling the position of the block;
  • Justification button. The block can be put left, center, or right. Or a space between items can be added;
  • Button to make the field required;
  • Button for name copying;
  • New Advanced Choice” button to create an additional choice box; 
  • Automatic transition button that redirects to the next page when the values are changed;
  • Other options.

There are two settings tabs to adjust the Advanced Choices Field block: General and Styles.


In this tab, the main customization options of the block are available.


In the Layout section of the Settings tab, there are the following settings:

  • Justification — options to justify a block. It can be put left, center, or right. Additionally, the gap between blocks can be added with the help of the corresponding buttons. Mind that the last option is available only when horizontal Orientation is picked;
  • Orientation — the view of the columns, which can be either horizontal (in a line) or vertical (stackable boxes);
  • Allow to wrap to multiple lines — toggle that allows putting options in the next line if there is not enough space on the screen. For instance, on mobile devices.


The next section is called General:

  • Field Label — label for the field that will be displayed in the form before options;
  • Form Field Name — unique field name/ID that can be used for further work with the field on the WordPress back end. It should contain only lowercase Latin letters, numbers, and “-” or “_” characters with no spaces;
  • Field Description — optional field for the field description. If completed, the description will be displayed under the field.


The Value section includes several settings options:

  • Allow multiple choices — a toggle that allows selecting several options in the field (basically, like a Checkbox Field). Otherwise, the field works as a Radio Field, meaning that only one option of the field can be picked.
  • Default Value — a field where one can put the Value of one or more fields. If put, this exact value will be selected by default. For instance, “Book Name #1”. If several options are desired to be default, these can be separated by a comma and space.

If several values are put in the Default Value field, but only one option is allowed for selection (the Allow multiple choices toggle is disabled), only the first option will be chosen by default in the form. The following ones are going to be ignored.

  • Add Dynamic Value — a button that allows setting value under certain conditions. Once clicked, the Edit Dynamic Value pop-up with additional customization options appears.



For this block, there is no need to install JetStyleManager to configure styles, as they are located in a separate tab.

In the Styles tab of the settings, by default, the user can alter the Text Choice and Background Choice of the default, hover, and checked states of the choice boxes.

Except for the mentioned text and background settings, there is a three-dots button next to each section. 

By clicking, additional Tools, like Border and Radius of the field, can be added, default Text and Background can be removed, or the selected options can be reset by pressing the “Reset All” button.

Advanced Choice Block Settings

These are the settings of the one particular choice block. For example, in the “Text” layout, there are three boxes by default (but more can be added.) So, clicking on one of the boxes will open the Advanced Choice block settings.

A needed box can also be found in a Document Overview section.

Above the selected box, there is a toolbar with controls located:

advanced choice block icons
  • Button to switch to the Advanced Choices Field block;
  • Inactive transformation button (the structure cannot be changed);
  • Justification button; 
  • Button to switch between “Default” and “Checked” states.

This button does not affect the preset in any way. It is designed to view the applied styling in the Checked choice section of the Advanced Choices Field block.



Initially, the general Layout settings can be adjusted. These are the same as in the Advanced Choices Field block.

In this section, there are two fields displayed:

  • Value for Calculated Field — value that will be used in the Calculated Field if needed.


Except for the General Settings tab, there is also the one called Styles.

In the Color section, the Text and Background colors for an option can be selected.
