    Using the Does Not Contain state in the condition

    Asked by StrawberryDesi on February 20, 2017 at 11:28 AM

    In my Cincinnati Meeting Report form I'd like to create a condition where the  "Member Search" question that requires that the field contains a number (any number) before the user can proceed to the next page.  How can I do that?

     

    Thank you .

    Thank you for waiting.

    The Show/Hide Field condition has a "DOES NOT CONTAIN" state. You can use it to Hide the Page Break field if Member Search field only contains a letter.

    Here's the result:

    Hope that works for you.

    Hello Jan,
    That worked PERFECTLY. Thank you! I would, however, like to include one
    additional condition:
    I would also like to *HIDE *the *Page Break field* if the *Member Search
    field* *DOES NOT CONTAIN* a comma followed by three spaces "*, *".
    How do I create the condition that will *HIDE *the *Page Break field* if
    the *Member Search field* *DOES NOT CONTAIN* *a comma followed by three
    spaces*?
    Please let me know.
    Thank you.

    You should, however, consider using is empty state like this:
