    How to eliminate options based on previous answer?

    Asked by MDCovers on June 12, 2012 at 10:00 PM

    I have a form made up, and I have one issue that I cannot figure out.  I have 3 radio buttons, where the customer can select a particular type of material. 

    Afterwards, they have to select the color of the material.  However, certain materials only have certain colors.  This means that once the select the radio button, the other options should disappear so they don't mistakenly select the wrong one.  Is this possible with jotform, or any other way?  

    Thank you so much in advanced!
