    Radio Button Question

    Asked by backbone on August 17, 2012 at 06:18 AM

    when using the radio button, is it possible that if someone selects one of the radio buttons that another button open

     

    I.e Radio button 1 is selected for red tshirts upon selecting this another drop down menu opens where they can choose sizes small, medium, large, extra large, is there a way to get over this?

     

    Another example

     

    T-Shirty They can select either

      Tshirt -red or blue

    If they select red then a list just for red is provided i.e

    Red - ferrari
    red - girl
    Red - toyota


    But if they selectd blue they would be provided with a list of

    Blue - hotel

    Blue - ocean
    Blue - sky

     

    So from the start if they select either one of those colours they would be presented with different options to select from, is this possible?

     

    Thanks

    Hi and thanks for contacting us.

     

    Yes, what you need it's possible to do through our conditional logic.

    I may suggest you to read our guide at this link: http://www.jotform.com/help/57-Conditional-Logic-on-Forms

     

    You need to place a dropdown field.

    Now click on "Setup & Embed" tab and choose "Conditions" button.

    At next step choose: Show / Hide a form field and setup it like this:

    If "Colour" field equals to RED then

    show "dropdown" field.

     

    Do not hesitate to contact us if you need further help.

    Thank you very much for this, i have got to this step where can i find this once i have selected setup and embed

     

    ok i found the condition

     

    From here when i select it

     

    so if it is red

     

    The show - please select field

    when i select the field, do i have to already have built in the form? I mean from here, would a drop down have to already created it but then wont it be shown?

     

    When i preview it though i cannot see view the power i have created

    Bascially this is what i am doing

     

    They have a choice - Amps or Kws

    When i go into the setup and add it in in the conditions this is what i am doing but it is not working,

     

    step by step
    --------------
    Show hide form field (next)
    If power (this is the selction for amps or kws) field = equels to = amps
    the (show) amps field

     

    For my amps field i have created a selection where they can choose which amps they would like to access

     

    Though when i do the preview i only see KWs and can select from there, could someone please point me in the right direction?

     

    Thanks

    What i dont get is

     

    the selection for amps and kws is now visible in the form, will they be visible when someone comes to view the form?

    If you hide a form field, it will only be shown when the conditions are matched. So hidden fields can't be seen if they don't select the matching field. I've made a sample form for you. It's very simple but just wanted to be sure what you are trying to do. Please check this sample form. It can easily be modified according to your needs.

    Hi there

     

     

    Thanks i just want to update this and make this clear for other users

    If you want users to select say Tshirts (or what ever you want them to select)- Drop down can be blue or red, you dont place the setting/conditions to the one you want people to select like you dont apply the condition to the option that allows them to choose between blue or red, you only apply it to the blue or red once they have been added to the form (as these will be invisible and only visible once someone has decided what colour they want)

     

    T-shirts drop down = blue or red

    you then create a drop down condition for blue or red so you are actually adding these into the form

    you create i.e blue with the sizes (sizes will be in the drop down selection) same for red

     

    Once they are created you then select blue or red to begin with and go to the conditions of show/hide (so you are now setting the condition)

    So highlight blue shirt go to the conditions tab select it (show/hide form field)

    If tshirts selected equels to blue shirts (this is the option they will select if they had chosen blue above in the first T-shirt drop down)

    then show blue shirts

     

    This is for those people like myself who found the document a little confusing and who are new to the form field thing

    Thanks for the help
