Hints for checkboxes and radio buttons

With Form Builder, form authors can provide a help message for every form field, and we recently discussed how we improved the visual appearance of help messages. For radio buttons and checkboxes, it sometimes make sense to have a message targeting a specific radio button or checkbox, as done in this fictional example:

You can now enter such a message through the dialog Form Builder already uses to provide the label and values for each checkbox or radio button. To that effect, the dialog now includes a third column Hint, as you can see in the screenshot below. Just like for the labels, you can use HTML in the hint if you check the corresponding checkbox at the top of the dialog.

This feature will be available in Orbeon Forms 4.5.
