    Using payment block "quantity" in a condition

    Asked by wsrhodes on May 31, 2017 at 05:01 PM

    My form has a payment block. There is one option which is for a set purchase of 8 tickets (a full table).When they choose this option, I am able to open up 8 fields to allow for entry of the names of the 8 people. 

    The other option has a "quantity" box (I've tried text and drop-down) that allows for purchase of 1 - 10 tickets. I want to be able to have a condition where I test the value in the quantity field to open up boxes for the additional names (2 - 10) of the people attending. However, the condition choices only let me select the "table" option or the "individual" option, but not the quantity entered.

    Is there a way to access this field in a condition?????

    Note: I can create 10 ticket entry fields (for purchasing 1 ticket, 2 tickets, 3.....) but that is really clunky.

    Sorry but I am having challenges understanding the desired options you want.

    But I understand that you want to show a set of fields depending on the entered quantity in the product field. The best way to do that is to group the fields using section collapse element.


    Then in your condition, you can do the following.

    Here's a cloned version of your form with this changes https://form.jotformpro.com/71507427776969. I only worked on ticket2 and ticket3. Feel free to try it. 

    You can also clone this form if you like so you can see how it was setup. http://www.jotform.com/help/28-Cloning-a-Form-from-a-Web-Page

    Hope this helps!

    I believe you are understanding correctly.   The problem was my not being able to select the "quantity" field. When I did the drop-down in the Conditional section I did NOT get what you showed on your screen print. I only got these choices and assumed that "Ticket Options" was the only field:



    But...when I looked at your cloned form I saw the additional field (un-numbered) after the "submit" field.


    This is the field you are referencing. So I can use this. But I am curious: Where did it come from? Why is it shown at the bottom?  Please explain.

    But knowing about this field means that you have indeed solved my problem!  THANK YOU!!!!!

    On behalf of my colleague, you are welcome!

    Not really sure what you mean by "This is the field you are referencing. So I can use this. But I am curious: Where did it come from? Why is it shown at the bottom?  Please explain.".
