Can't hide and show children's field based on conditions

    Hi Jotform,

    I have created a form but wanting to show/hide children's name and age fields based on the number of children selected in the previous drop down box. It seems it is wanting to display Children Name 2 and Age 2 field even when I wanting to hide it using the conditions. 

    Also I wanted to calculate the amount to be paid by selecting certain package at the end of the form but not sure how this can be done. I have tried with PayPal and I don't want to use PayPal as payment gateway.

    Can you help?

    Many thanks.

    Hi Ron

    The trick to getting this to work is to ask yourself, "Under what conditions should a particular field be shown?". In the case of the "Children Name 1" (or rather "Child Name 1") fields, you would want them shown when "No of Children" equals to either 1 or 2. So, the condition should look like this:

    Similarly, you would want the Child 2 fields shown only when "No of Children" equals to 2:
    Here's a clone of your form which has the above conditions applied.
    Should you need further assistance, we'd be happy to help.
