    Show-hide images not activating when passing variables

    Asked by armandolucero on February 01, 2013 at 02:58 AM

    This subject is related to linking drop-down items to show specific images upon selection, such as mentioned here.  I have done this successfully with the following jotform here.  

    It all works, except when making the selection by passing on variables in the URL such as here.  Notice the appended string at the end of the URL: <?workshopDates52=March%203-4,%202013>.  This does make the appropriate selection but the image hooked to the selection will not activate to show.  I am guessing it may have something to do with onclick.

    Please advise on if it is possible to show image and how?  Thank you in advance!

    Sincerely, Armando

    Hi Armand,

    The url you provide is produced by a conditional tag. Using an address bar to axecute a formor conditional tag is not simply possible. If you need to show up the images, the best way would be to create a new page with the image.
