    How do I group a section of inputs to show together in the conditional statement

    Asked by registrarcorp on October 09, 2012 at 11:02 AM

    I understand how to do conditional statements, but it seems like it will just show one input/text box with this statement. I would like to group a set of them so that if the customer presses one button, a series of questions will appear.

    Yes, this is possible. See this example form I have made, http://form.jotform.me/form/22824414169454?.

    I have used the Checkbox field and add image codes to options and inject CSS codes to hide the checkbox and repeat Conditions.

    Please feel free to clone the sample form and modify it.

    On my form, I ask "How many different food products are included in your shipment? " 

    Based on this answer, I ask the following questions.

    Detailed Product Description (input box)

    Number of Units (input box)

    Unit Description (a drop box)

    Weight/Unit (input box)

    Weight Unit Description (a drop box)

    Manufacturer (input box)

    Facility Street Address (input box)

    City (input box)

    Country (input box)

    Registration # (input box)

    Has the product listed above ever been refused entry to another country? (2 radio button options)

    A Comments box


    So the answer to the question can be between 1-50. Based on this answer, I would like to show these questions the appropriate number of times.

    I am sorry but it is not possible to group fields to be hidden using a single condition yet.

    My colleague's example employs a separate hide/show condition for each form field.

    Currently, that's the only way around this. But, just so you know, we have already suggested to our developers the idea of involving multiple fields in a single condition.

    The feedback is positive, and this is one of those things that will be added in a future release. Sadly though, we cannot really commit to a specific time for implementation as the development team have been very busy with other things such as bug fixes.

    In any case, we will definitely make a grand announcement when the said feature becomes implemented.

    Hiding multiple fields based on a single conditional response can now be made possible by including those fields in a form collapse section.

    Here's a guide that has the information you need:
