Help with check box value list with "Other:" and free text

Post

Hello, currently for check box fields where there is a need to select "Other: _____________" and allowing the user to provide free text input, I have an additional editable text field below the check box value list allowing the user to include details for 'Other:'.

 

Field 1 (check box value list)

[ ] red

[ ] blue

[ ] green

[ ] other (specify below)

 

Field 2 (free text box)

other: __________________

 

Ideally what I am hoping is possible is when the user checks off 'Other' in the check box field, a pop up dialog box allowing them to enter some text. Then the original check box value list would be updated to include added free text along with the 'other' value checked.

New Field 1

[ ] red

[ ] blue

[ ] green

[X] other : orange

 

Also, should the user changed their mind and removes the 'other' checked item that the value list returns back to their original values.

Field 1

[ ] red

[ ] blue

[ ] green

[ ] other

 

Can this be accomplished?

Thank you!
