How do I change Control Type in my DataTable to Checkbox?

I am trying to display this field in my DataTable as a CheckBox, so that the user can tick the boxes as appropriate.

 

I have added the checkbox field to the DataTable. It currently shows the Control type as Text column, and it gives me no other options?

Hi @stapes 

Unfortunately Data Tables are read only, so you will not be able to set it up so users can do in-row editing like that.

As @SeanHenderson said, Data Tables are non-editable data.  You should use a Gallery instead if you want to allow user's to edit.

Hi @stapes ,

 

I suggest you use gallery.

To format the gallery to table look, the main thing is to adjust the position of the size of the textbox. Set all height of text box to be the same, and align them tightly, then set the border property of text box, make the textboxes more like table cells. 

Then, it still lacks a header column, so just add some labels with the title, adjust the size and position. Eventually, Gallery will look like this:Snipaste_2019-12-16_17-46-54.png
