    Disabled Form: Allow to style warning message using custom CSS or editor

    Asked by konservative on March 16, 2017 at 04:29 AM

    The thankyou page get the custom css, it could be an idea to implement that on the disable warning page too.

    I hope that is an easy way to solve this.

    I have forwarded this to our developers as a feature request. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that this will be implemented anytime soon. 

    For the meantime, if I may suggest, you can use conditional logic to display a custom message telling the user if the form is somewhat "disabled".

    Here's my sample form: https://form.jotformpro.com/70742289466971

    Here's how I did mine:

    1. First, I added the "Short Text Entry" or text box. This is where the status of the form is set. 

     

    2. In my case, the default value is set to "Disabled".  

     

    3. I then use "Section Collapse" or Form Collapse fields to group the fields on my form or create sections on it. 

    1st section collapse: "Form Disabled - Message"

    2nd section collapse: "Form Enabled - Main Form"

     

    4. Now I want to hide the actual button and I want it by default automatically opens the section.

    Section Visibility = Visible

    Button Visibility = Hidden

     

    5. Now we need to set up condition logic wherein we will display a specific section based on the status set in the text box.

    Condition #1:

    IF "Status" text box is EQUAL to "Disabled"

    THEN Show "Disabled Form - Message" section.

     

    Condition #2:

    IF "Status" text box is NOT EQUAL to "Disabled"

    THEN Show "Enabled Form - Main Form" section.

     

    There's a specific guide that helps you understand the relationship of the form collapse to the conditions, here's a guide that you can check: https://www.jotform.com/help/297-Show-or-Hide-Multiple-Fields-at-Once-Using-the-Form-Collapse-Tool

     

    You now have somewhat a customize page for a form that is somewhat "disabled". 

    I hope that helps.

    I have just tested on my end and I can see it works fine, you can see my testing form on the next link: https://form.jotformpro.com/62304705043950 

    I've also checked your form and got this message: 

    Also, using the Form Calculation widget seems to allow you to capture the submissions counter value, as shown on my form, you only need to add the widget to your form and then include the submissions counter in the calculation widget.

    Do let us know how it goes on your end.

    I have manual set status to Disable because it's a form that's live.

     

    When the Submission field not is hidden it works, when it is hidden it don't work.
    Now I haved hide it by setting height and width to 0

    You could also try checking your form settings, may be that it's been set to clear hidden fields, you will be able to check this by going to the settings tab and form settings section, once there click on the show more options button: 

    Scrolling down will get you into the clear hidden fields option: 

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    You can pass the submission count to the form calculation widget to be used as a number. Here's a sample form that I did: https://form.jotformpro.com/70792719260966. Here's how I did mine:

    1. First, I added the Form Calculation widget. 

    2. Then in the form calculation widget's setting, I added the submission count's value. 

     

    3. You can then use the form calculation widget as the parameter for your condition:

     

    4. After that, you can use custom CSS codes to hide the widgets. In my case, I need to get the widget's field IDs and set the display attribute to "none":

    #id_15, #id_13 {

      display: none !important;

    }

    To get the field IDs, you can check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-field-IDs-and-names 

     

    Let us know if that will work. Unfortunately, a part of the main form will display for a few seconds before it will be hidden.
