    Hello, exactly how does the 'hidden' box work?

    Asked by guest_23316269282051 on November 27, 2012 at 03:14 PM


    I am in the process of making changes to one of my forms. I figured out to use the 'conditions' tool to hide some fields based on the choices they select.

    Now, here is where I am stuck:  I would like to make fields visable when choices are made; if this is possible.

    You can accomplish that by using show/hide conditional logics applied to fields .

    Select the Setup & Embed tab > Click Conditions > Select Show / Hide a form field then click Next.
    You may then formulate your conditions to hide or show the corresponding (form collapse) section. Check out the sample forms below and feel free to clone them to your account to learn how exactly this solution was implemented.
    This simple form hides the Previous Employment Details section when the user chooses Yes in the question Previously Employed?

    This hotel booking form is a little more advanced due to multiple sections and different condition combinations.

    As always, feel free to ask for assistance via the JotForm support forum if you encounter difficulties while implementing this solution.
