    Hello

    Try writing 'today' in the condition space. I tried and it worked.

    @ visa21

    I checked your form http://www.jotform.me/form/40082565645961, with the following condition.

    IF ARRIVAL Before today Hide Submit

    and everything seems to work just fine. Did you manage to sort this out? The condition is actually correct, I don't see any problems with it. Here's my test: https://shots.jotform.com/elton/Screencast_15-50_13-01-2014.mp4

    If you still have this issue on hand, please let us know here so we can assist you further. You should also try to clear your browser's cache and cookies before making another test.

    Regards!

    New response receivedI did put down ‘today’ in the condition space, but it doesn’t work, you can see that from the following link
    http://www.visa21.net/index_topic.php?did=239852&didpath=/229414/239852
    I suspect is something to do with the value of ‘today’ in difference systems????

    Hello,

    Please use If Arrival Date is before today+1, and it will work.

    That is the same as today when you use the rule 'before'

    Think of it as telling the computer - I want this to happen before 'now', then the computer will tell you it cant happen, because now has just happened. :-)

    Here is a test form (slightly different, same principle) to demostrate this, you can clone it and take a closer look:http://jotformpro.com/form/40077036931956

    Please let us know if this helps.

    I can assure you that the condition/rule for

    IF ARRIVAL Before today

    Hide Submit

    is working as it should when use the form on your site. These sorts of conditions depend on the time on the user's computer. As such, please confirm that the date on your computer's clock is correct. I'm afraid that's the only reason I can currently think of that would cause that condition to malfunction. Then again, the other condition shouldn't be working either.

    This is all rather perplexing. Have any of the form's users reported this issue to you?

    Hang on, I see what you mean. When the form loads, the submit button is shown. However, when I select today's date, it vanishes. There should be an easy fix for that. I'll be back shortly.

    Okay, there's definitely something wrong with the wizard insofar as date conditions are concerned. For the life of me, I cannot get the submit button to display when today's date is selected. I tried all kinds of workarounds (including substituting SHOW conditions) to no avail.

    Thanks for alerting us to this flaw. A ticket will be submitted to get this rectified.

    Actually, I think the wizard is functioning okay because the following solves the problem:


    In other words, just add a separate condition to show the button when the date is EQUAL to today is selected, as was done in this demo. Of course, the above uses a SHOW condition instead of a HIDE one but that should not make any difference in this case.
