    Adding Conditional Formatting to Checkboxes

    Asked by ccureslife on October 26, 2012 at 05:02 PM

    I'm trying to find a way to make the fields listed below my checkboxes only appear when the checkbox is checked. I tried to use conditional formatting but it didn't work. The boxes disappear and don't show up when the checkbox is clicked. What am I doing wrong? Here is my sample form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/22995424304960

    Hello, I've taken a look at your form and I can currently see what your problem is. Could you please specify which fields you are trying to hide based on certain conditions when a checkbox is ticked this way we can help you to create the form you are trying to make?

    Hi, take a look at this form i've cloned of yours and added in what I believe are the conditions you are trying to create: https://www.jotform.us/form/22997676065167 and let me know if this is what you've been trying to do or if there's anything else you need help with?

    If it meets your needs, feel free to Clone and use it again with the modified conditions that i've applied to it for you.
