    how can I create a popup window from a specific dropdown menu selection?

    Asked by showmansh on January 05, 2014 at 11:52 AM

    how can I have a popup window for t&c's, but specific to a dropdown selection earlier on the form.

    I have used your widget but it only links to one popup url, how can I make it smart, ie change link to suit selection of the dropdown? then when popup closed return to the original form window to complete or hit submit.

    ex- select 1= t&c popup window for product1, select  2 = different t&c popup for product 2

    I would suggest adding all the terms using the same Widget and use our Conditional Logic to show the term base on the dropdown selection.

    Example form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40045924991963

    You conditional logic: Conditional Logic on Forms (show/hide condition) should be like this:

    that worked until I made the t&c's "required", then even if the option fields were hidden the logic stopped the form from submitting. if I make them un-required then the form would submit but without the checkbox having to be checked.


    thanks anyway
