    How to show/hide fields based on user's answer?

    Asked by cwmn on March 18, 2017 at 10:15 PM
    I was thinking of having a link which would either make visible the question forms or that it would link to a secondary tab on the form giving a similar appear/disappear feeling. So how do I create a text link to either change field appearance show/hide or make it go to a tab?

    You cannot hide/show fields when clicking on a link, you will only be able to do it by asking your user a question, then based on the answer you may show or hide the needed fields. 

    To get more info about it, please  check this guide: How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer

    But could you design a form with tabs and use a link to navigate between tabs?

    We already have a widget to create tabs in your forms, please try it: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/form_tabs 

    It will allow you to navigate between tabs just by click  on them. Let us know if you need more help.

    I see the widget for tabs, the question is can I use a link to navigate between tab. So I use one tab as a home screen to present a basic home screen if they want more info they click a more info button which takes them to the form on the second tab. It appears you can use links to navigate to anchors and can I get it to navigate to a different tab?
    Thanks,
    Chuck

    I'm sorry, but that is not possible. You have to advise the user to click on the tab if they want more information as you have outlined. Please that the Form Tabs widget requires you to have a page break in the form.
