If you want your clients to be able to see their options without difficulty, you should utilize an image select field instead of standard drop-downs, radio buttons, or checkboxes.
Using a form with an image select field is essential for event companies with decoration options, restaurants with food options, clothing stores with diverse designs, and so on. For a better visual, check out our demo below.
Tutorials - How to add Image Select field to your form
To begin, make sure that you already enabled the feature Image Select field in the PAFE Settings.
After that, you can either create a new form or continue with an existing one.
For example, we have a field with label “Product”:
Firstly, edit Product Field > Content Tab> Field > Type > choose Image Select field type
In the Options box, set options for Image Select field. Enter each option in a separate line. To differentiate between label and value, separate them with a pipe char (“|”).
By default, the first option of Image Select field is selected. If you don’t want that, please add a blank line or a pipe char/vertical in the first option.
In Image Select field settings, you also may choose to enable or disable “Send data by label” or “Remove this field from repeater”.
With Multiple Selection Enabled, your customers can choose many options. Besides, you can set Limit Multiple Selects, Rows, and Default Value.
To add a new image, click the Box.
So we have completed a simple Image Select field. A view of your form:
Form ID: Applying only one Identity of the Form value is a basic mandatory in order for your Form to work normally. Enter the same Form ID for all fields in a form.
How to name your Form ID: Be aware that you can use only Latin characters for this name. Numbers and underscores are also acceptable but do not leave spaces. If you want to use multiple words to name the field, divide them with an underscore.
E.g., order_form (use an underscore instead of a dash/hyphen)
Type: Choose Image Select field type
Field ID: The Identity of the Field has to be unique in a Form. Duplicated Field IDs will make your Form not work properly.
How to name your Field ID: Be aware that you can use only Latin characters for this name. Numbers and underscores are also acceptable but do not leave spaces. If you want to use multiple words to name the field, divide them with an underscore. Furthermore, please do not enter Field ID = product.

Shortcode: You could get the input data of the field by embedding this shortcode into a hidden field, calculated field, email, or other actions in Submit Button
Label: It is a name that appears above the field bar and is visible to users.

Required mark: Show the mandatory mark right on the Label
Options: Fill out your options here, follow the Label|Value format. Enter each option in a separate line. To differentiate between label and value, separate them with a pipe char (“|”).
