    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can do it with using our Conditional Logic.

    For example:

    1. Add the Text Field to your form with hint text.

    2. Add the Text field to your form. Enter your message that you want. 

    3. Click Text field's Settings icon and set the Hide Field to Yes.

    4. Go to "Settings -> Conditions" page and select "Show/Hide Field". 

    5. Set these condition properties and just click "Save" button. You can change the "Contains" part to "Equal to" if you want. 

    Here is a result:
