    I had two 'Accommodation' fields - one is mandatory and has the radio button selections of accommodation type.

    The second one is what the accommodation will cost. It is showing as mandatory even though it isn't. I have turned it's 'required' flag on and off to try and reset it.

    Can you fix this for me?

    Thanks

    Also, the 'Balance' field that is identical to all the other calculated fields, refuses to show two decimal points. As above. Can that be fixed?

    Thanks

    You are conditionally requiring the second accommodation field. You will need to de-select it.

    For example:

    The reason for this is because you have  conditions on the balance field that are not set the same way as the calculation fields. To make it work you need to configure the two conditions to show empty decimal places.

    For example:

    Sorry - I'm doing a 'man' look, and just cannot see the 'Maths functions; Options' option in the conditions screen. It's obviously what I need though. I can see the 'Options' option in the widget settings, but not the conditions settings. Please help! :)

    Also I will turn of that 'Accommodation' condition - thanks. However, because I have quite a few calculations, I would like to do a final check before they submit the form that they have selected at least one meals option - ie that 'Total meals' is not zero. However that's a hidden field. Do you have a suggestion about how I could inform the user that they need to select at least one meals option?

    Ideally, I would like the count of meals options to equal the count of people entered in the configurable list widget.

    Thanks

    When you select "Calculate a field's value" in the DO statement, you'll be able to see the calculation box. Click the 3 dots ... to reveal the options you're looking for.

    Here's a visual guide:

    You still have to do that in the condition. Example, if the total is less than 1, show a text that says "Please select atleast one meal". You can add text using the Text element.

    It is not possible to dynamically change the count of the configurable list widget base on the user's input from the other field. They will have to manually click the add button to add more fields.

    Thanks - I knew I wasn't looking where I should have. All good.

    About the configurable list widget, I don't need to dynamically expand it. I actually want to know how many people are in the list - ie how many times (+1) that they've clicked 'Add'. 

    Thanks
