    Hi,

    This example is not for a dropdown list, this is just a radio button list.

    Please give example for a long dropdown list, will it be possible to disable the option that was selected in the previous submission?

    Thank you,

    IDOE Webmaster

    If you're going to set up show/hide conditions, the process is the same, when you're setting up the conditions and select the drop down, you can see the options the field has. 

    Now, it's not possible to conditionally disable options in a drop down, if you want to do this, you will need to use a different element such as the Inventory or Gift Registry widgets, here are some links with demo forms that you can check: 

    https://www.jotform.com/widgets/inventory

    https://www.jotform.com/widgets/gift-registry

    However, this feature is not available with drop downs at the moment. 

    If you have any questions, let us know.

    Please keep me informed when the show/hide or disable/enable is available for the drop down field.

    Thank you.
