Making fields viewable only upon submission of form

    I designed the form in the URL below to collect certain information from the viewer to provide calculated results ONLY AFTER the viewer fills in required fields and hits submit.

    When the form opens I want the viewer to be able to view and access all fields from the top of the form to the Submit button. The fields below the Submit button are filled with results automatically calculated from the inputs above. I only want those fields viewable to the user when they have pressed Submit.

    I have discovered that (at least from what I can tell) that requiring the Submit button to be pressed/activated is not a condition that can be used to "hide" the fields below until the Submit button has been pressed.

    Is there a way to accomplish what I am trying to do?

    Thanks, JotFormers!

    It's not possible to trigger conditions based on the submit button, I think you may show the calculation fields if all the other fields are filled, the calculations can be configured as read only so the users cannot change the results. 

    This guide will help you with the show/hide conditions: https://www.jotform.com/help/316-How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer 

    To set the field as read only, follow these steps:

    You may also let the users to edit their submission and show the desired fields there, this guide will help you allowing them to get the edit link: https://www.jotform.com/help/40-How-to-Let-Users-Update-Their-Form-Submissions-at-a-Later-Date 

    This widget will help you knowing that they are using the edit link: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/get_form_page_url 

    And you will need to use the show hide conditions, you may set up a condition like "If get form page url contains edit show calculation". 

    I hope this helps.
