Hi @Mikey 

Not sure what type of toggle switch you are referring to, but I recently turned one of my checkbox field to this


I used this article as a guide: https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_css_switch.asp

Here's the CSS code I inserted inside my Header. You'll have to change every "InsertRecordCheckbox1" to InsertRecord + field name


/* Toggle Button */
-webkit-appearance: none;
-webkit-tap-highlight-color: transparent;
position: relative;
border: 0;
outline: 0;
cursor: pointer;
margin: 10px;
/* To create surface of toggle button */
input[name="InsertRecordCheckbox1"]:after {
content: '';
width: 60px;
height: 28px;
display: inline-block;
background: rgba(196, 195, 195, 0.55);
border-radius: 18px;
clear: both;
/* Contents before checkbox to create toggle handle */
input[name="InsertRecordCheckbox1"]:before {
content: '';
width: 32px;
height: 32px;
display: block;
position: absolute;
left: 0;
top: -3px;
border-radius: 50%;
background: rgb(255, 255, 255);
box-shadow: 1px 1px 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
/* Shift the handle to left on check event */
input[name="InsertRecordCheckbox1"]:checked:before {
left: 32px;
box-shadow: -1px 1px 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
/* Background color when toggle button will be active */
input[name="InsertRecordCheckbox1"]:checked:after {
background: #16a085;

/* Transition for smoothness */
input[name="InsertRecordCheckbox1"]:checked:after {
transition: ease .3s;
-webkit-transition: ease .3s;
-moz-transition: ease .3s;
-o-transition: ease .3s;

Hey @Mikey,

If you are talking about making something like a collapsible section via a toggle switch... I've got a solution. This use to be in the Caspio HowTo articles, I am not sure why they deleted the article. 

The original:

// Put this in an HTML block above the fields you want inside the collapsible section. Changing the 'value' will change what text is displayed.

<input type="button" class="dropdown1" onClick="Displayer(1)"

<table id="Section1" style="display:none;"><td>

//Put this in an HTML block below all of the fields you want in the collapsible section.


//Add some styling to the toggle button. Make sure to surround CSS with style tags.

input[type=button] {
border-radius: 3px;
color: yellow;
border-color: #21618C;
background: #21618C;
-webkit-border-radius: 3px;
-moz-border-radius: 3px;

input[type=button]:hover {
background: #A9A9A9;


Or, if you want to spaz it up a bit. This one uses an image of 2 arrows that rotates 180 degrees when opened or closed. 

//first block
<img src="https://img.icons8.com/metro/26/000000/double-down.png" onClick="Displayer(1)" style="width:20px;" id="estimatebuttons1">

<table id="Section1" style="display:none;"><td>
//second block

  function Displayer(n) {
    var check = document.getElementById('Section' + n);
    var image = document.getElementById('estimatebuttons' + n);

    if (check.style.display == 'none') {
        check.style.display = 'inline';
        image.style.transform = 'rotate(180deg)';
    } else {
        check.style.display = 'none'
        image.style.transform = 'rotate(0deg)';
