    Question about the hide/show condition

    Asked by aznmoni on October 05, 2012 at 01:50 AM

    So I want to create a booking enquiry form where people can reserve up to 10 travelers. On the trip down menu where I ask "How many travelers are you reserving for, they can choose 1-10 travelers. If they choose 1, they should only have to fill out 1 traveler's information, and would HIDE the other 2-10 travelers. If they choose 2 travelers, it should HIDE 3-10 travelers. And so on. This is actually very pain staking to do to hide all those fields every time they choose a different number of travelers. And not only that, it doesn't work to HIDE the previous amount when I go up the next amount of travelers. Is there an easier way to do this that works? the script is embedded of this site:

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    hi,

    It is still going to be a bit of a pain to setup but i find its easier to manage conditions if you use 'shows' instead of 'hides'. 

    e.g 'show field(s) 1' when 1,2,3,4 or 5 travelers have been selected, 'show field(s) 2' when 2,3,4 or 5 travellers have been selected, etc etc

     

     

    And build up your conditions like that. 

     

    You will find it easier this way!

    Thank you fxr for your help. Yeah this still very pain staking to do. The one that I have now took me an hour to just do 2 number of travelers. I wish there was an easier way where I can group each field together so I don't have to go through them one by one. Maybe that is something you guys can improve on with the conditions to make jotform even more user friendly to use. Thanks for your help.
