    Question about creating a form element?

    Asked by dkern on June 09, 2017 at 11:12 AM

    Is there a form that has dropdowns for vehicle selection?  Meaning that the person could select the year from a drop down, then the make, then the model?  

    Is there one already created somewhere? I couldn't find it in templates... 


    If not, how would I go about creating that?  The model field would have to be depend on the make field....


    Thanks you.

    I have created a Demo form that can select a vehicle by Year, Make, and Model. Here's the URL: https://form.jotformpro.com/71595550277969

    Please check it and if you like the demo form, please follow this guide to clone it and check the conditions configuration: https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    You can also add more options in the Drop down field but you need to add conditional logic and create more drop down field for the "make" vehicle. I used the Show or hide conditional logic to the form. For more information, please check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/316-How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer


    If you have questions or need clarifications, please contact us again. Thank you.

    Thank you, this was helpful.  I'm working on building it out now. 


    I have another question- This takes car of if the person owns one car... Is there a way to conditionally duplicate the fields if they have more than one? 


    Or what would be the easiest way and best for the person using the form if they had 3 cars to list?

    You can do that, but you will have to create all fields (duplicates) for each car, for example:

    And you can create conditions to show/hide appropriate fields:
