There are to variations(see above images). The standard version which is placed one above the other and the Flow version which can be placed next to other flow controls and arranged in rows. Both controls serve the same function but are placed and used within a form a bit differently.


Each version has it's own customizable configurations. They mostly share the same settings. Flow controls also have the additional benefit of adding borders to around each flow control.
