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?
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?

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?

I have tried doing it now a number of times, but when i go to preview my form nothing is in there, could someone please point me in the direction i have tried different variations here to get this right

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?
yeah it is not working for me
Could someone please come back to me on this one

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.

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
