    Feature request condition: On my fullname, I want the answer will start with the big letter so that the next field will show up.

    Asked by jdadmin on April 22, 2013 at 02:07 PM

    Basically if someone types example there surname 'Smith' i want to show a field but then they have to type it the way i did which is 'Smith' and the field would show but if they typed 'smith' no capital 'S' then the field would not show. How do i get this to work?

    I don't think capitals matter although I am not entirely sure give it a test and see.
    With contains it checks for the text anywhere in the entry so I could type Bob Smith and it would activate the condition whereas with equals to it has to be exactly the same.

    The difference between Equal and Contains conditions is equal must be the exact or equivalent value to be triggered wherein the Contains condition can  does not need to have the exact value but only contain the one of the value.

    e.g  

    if NAME contains E then trigger condition

    In the input field value, If put I put TEST, then the condition is already met since TEST contains E.

    While in equal, it will not work when you set the rule to if NAME is equal to E.

    For your second question, you can try creating a new rule with lower and upper case.

    e.g.

    If NAME equal to SMITH then trigger condition

    If NAME contains smith  then trigger condition

    If NAME contains Smith  then trigger condition

    Alternatively, you can use a script that will automatically convert the inputted text to a lower or uppercase so you will not need to set multiple conditions. In order to do this, you will need to use the Form Source embed tag and add a JavaScript function.

    @jdadmin,

    This feature is not yet availble.

    Please try my colleague jeffreylandicho suggested. You have to download the form source code and add the javascript function on your source code.

     

    Thanks!
