    How to show/hide questions beased on user input?

    Asked by besttripadvice on September 07, 2013 at 05:05 AM


    I would like to insert the following in my form:


    "Did you purchase a Discount Card"  followed by two check boxes for yes & No......

                                                   If yes is checked  -  a text box should pop up for text input.

                                                   If no  -     a message should appear to give direction on a card purchase. 




    Thanks again,

    It's very easy to create such forms by using the conditions feature.

    I created a demo form for you, please take a look:  http://form.jotform.co/form/32492222647858

    Here are the steps:

    1. Load your form in form editor.

    2. Add a radio button question in your form with options as yes/no.

    3. Add two more questions in your form which needs to be shown on click on yes/no question.

    4. Add conditions in your form to show/hide questions based on the answer of your first question.

    Here is a guide to help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic


    Hope this helps.

    Thank you!

    Thank you.  But still having trouble....My original radio button answers (YES & NO) allows both boxes to be checked at the same time.  I'm a little confused with all the yes and no.  


    Also having trouble creating the option Response to NO.  How do I add this message?

    "A message should appear to give direction on a card purchase"

    Actually would you mind posting a screen shot of the conditions you used to set up the sample you sent me?  I would REALLY appreciate it as this would solve much of my confusion.  

    Thanks again.

    I've checked your form and it shows that you are using a check box instead of radio button. Just simple replace the check box to radio button and set your condition and it should work now.
