    Problems with Conditions Show / Hide a form field

    Asked by landregsearches on November 05, 2012 at 08:57 AM


    I Have a radio button field on my form with 4 pictures to choose from. Once a user has selcted their picture, they continue to the next page and it shows them a much large version of the picture that they have selected.


    I have set up my Hide a form field so if they select the first picture, when they continue to the next page and it should only show the picture they have slected.

    When I set this up with my 1st image and did a test run it worked fine, but when I set it up for my 2nd, 3rd, 4th picture, all the other hide fields form just seemed to stop working.

    I.e now If I set up the hide field conditions for my first picture, it will work fine, but when I set up my hide field conditions for my 2nd picture, the 2nd picture works fine but the 1st picture no longer wants to work.


    How do I fix this?


    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there,

    Here is a fom with your conditions working:


    The issue is using hide/show conditions with page breaks sometimes cause problems.

    I would suggest using conditions to redirect to a specific page according to the choice of the user.

    You can still set conditions even with no text on the fields. 

    Please give the above form a try and if it works as you want, feel free to clone it and use it.

    My apologies.

    After further checking the solutions provided, there is an error.

    The redirection works, but then when you click NEXT it will take you through the other images.

    I was able to make the Show/Hide options work properly.

    Please test this form and if it suits your needs feel free to clone it.

    Let us know if you need further assistance!
