    Is there anyway by which I can have the options available on one dropdown box to change depending on the users input in the box prior.


    For example:

    If a user chooses a certain show to attend in one dropdown box, can I change to box below it to show only the locations/date the show is available, rather than all the locations/dates available? 


    Thanks in advance

    I haven't created one yet. It was an inquiry as to wether it could be done.

    Thanks for contacting us.

    I think that to accomplish what you exactly need you may need to use the source code of your form so that you can apply some codding workaround as such function is not available in our form builder. Here's how you can get the source code: How to get your form source code

    However, I think our conditions may help to accomplish what you need, it would require to add all the fields (Date/Locations) to your form. Please see the next example: http://form.jotform.co/form/33226047900851

    You can accomplish that by following the next guide: How to Hide or Show Multiple Fields at Once Based On a Single Conditional Entry

    I hope this helps you. Please let us know if you need further assistance with this or kindly open a new  thread to post unrelated inquiries.

    That's exactly what I was looking for. I was so caught up in the use of drop down boxes, that I totally forgot about check boxes and radio buttons!!!Thank you very much.
