    Can I use conditions to make a collapsible element initially hidden, then have it appear collapsed?

    Asked by dmac on October 15, 2013 at 03:28 PM

    So, I just learned from a previous question that I can use conditions to reveal hidden fields included below a colapsable element. (Thank you very much!) However, the collapable element itself remains hidden.  Is it possible to have it appear and be in a collapsed position such that someone would have to click on the arrow on the right to expand it to see its contents?

    Well, it looks like as soon as I included the colapsible element in a condition to show it, it is hidden, even though I have its state as visibilie.  So it works perfectly.  Question answered!
