    Form-Collapse, Hiding and showing specific members by condition

    Asked by jacaulfieldjr on October 25, 2013 at 05:16 PM

    I am trying to create sections for a registration form and use conditions to hide certain fields based on users response.

    When I hide the portion of the form I want hidden, some of the fields are still displayed.  I was thinking that if I had a section that wasn't needed based on a user's response, that I could hide the entire section with a rule.

    Hello. Unfortunately, the Form-collapse spans all field items starting on its bottom until it finds another Form-collapse field like what is shown on the image below:

    If you hide a Form-collapse using a "Show/Hide Condition", it also hides all of its item along with it. The only work around is to remove the Form-collapse field and then "Show/Hide" individual items.


    If you need further help, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks
