How can I make a text box only usable if users check off the right payment option?

    We are using the purchase order payment tool.   We have one option that requires users to check the option under payment and to fill out 2 text boxes if they want this option.  Users are filling in the text boxes but not checking it off in payment for the correct total.  I would be happy if users could only type in info if they check off the payment option or if they fill in info the payment option is automatically selected.

    Showing/hiding elements of your page depending on user action is easy to implement by using Conditions. To use conditions, go to Setup & Embed > Conditions, then use the Conditions Wizard to add Rules to your form.


    In your case you will need to choose Show/Hide a form field, then click Next.  In the next dialog, you can then set conditions and do the necessary action if those conditions are met.

    In this example form, I have set the field "Additional Details" to show only if any of the "Membership Options" field is checked.

    Sample Form

    For more info on Conditions, go to this page: Conditional Logic on Forms
