    Hi there

    I refer to the following URL.

    https://www.jotform.com/help/371-How-to-Enable-Disable-Fields-Using-Conditional-Logic

    It does not ring a bell the connection between the below images.

    If we enter Enable/Disable Field, Demo Form is automatically created, right?

    How do you describe enable and disable?

    Looking f0rward to having your reply.

    We can't see any images on your post so if you plan to send us screenshots, please do so the way you do it before by linking an uploaded image to your post.

    No, this condition won't create a demo form. It just enables/disables a field.

    How do you describe enable and disable?

    Disabling a field conditionally is especially useful if you want to prevent users from modifying a field or filling out a field. Enabling it does the opposite. As a quick example, have a look at the form below to see how it works.

    However, the discrepancy arises between your user guide and my on-going setting.

    Please guide me how the discrepancy is off-set

    However, the discrepancy arises between your user guide and my on-going setting.

    What discrepancies are you referring to? Your screenshots won't exactly match the ones from the guide because your form and the form used in our guide are different.

    If it was the same form, then the fields would definitely be the same.

    So, your Please select a field options...

    ...will surely be different from the ones used in our guide:

    Not, unless I'm missing something else so please get back to us and further explain what sort of discrepancy you're referring to.
