Thank you @Ally and @oivanr. Both of those suggestions helped me get everything working from that initial issue question. I have a follow up question that I cannot find an answer for anywhere. Is there a jquery constructor similar to:
options.push (new Option(value, value));
but will work on populating the options for a checkbox element in QuForm rather then the example of a dropdown? Or will I have to code all of the html variables as .append and generate the structure myself to push into the .html()?
Thank you both for your help!
