    Progress Bar Widget: Is it possible for the progress bar to update the 'required fields' when certain fields become unrequired or disabled?

    Asked by betwrestling on December 21, 2016 at 02:43 PM

    So i have a progress bar saying how many required fields have been completed compared to how many there are still to do. What I would like to happen is when a user selects a particular option in a drop down another field becomes either disabled or Unrequired. As this form becomes disabled or Unrequired I would also like the progress bar to reflect this.


    For example, the progress bar says that the user has completed 5/23 required fields. However when the user chooses a particular option on the sixth field the required number of fields change to 22 instead of 23.


    How do i do this? Thank you in advance!

    Unfortunately, the Progress Bar widget was not designed to work with the conditionally required and disabled fields. I have submitted a request to see if the widget can be improved at some point.

    We cannot provide any ETA, but we will let you know if we have any updates on this.
