    Radio Button:options text & failure in condition handling

    Asked by WaSchirmer on January 19, 2014 at 07:42 AM

    Using of a <br> break element in an options text prevents correct condition handling.
    Option with included <br> element cannot be selected in "Show / Hide a form field" conditions.

    Generally the formatting of options text spread over more than one text line should be improved such a way, that identation of all text lines is aligned with first one.

    Workaround: use only single line options text

    Hi,

    I was able to use break tags without an issue to the conditional logic settings. What is the form URL? Please let us know so we can do our test using that form. Make sure to put the break tags on the form so we'll know how you made it.

    You can inject a custom CSS codes to the form to correct the alignments. We can help you about that, just please let us know the form URL .

    Thanks

    Hi Welvin,
    many tnx for the rapid answer. Te related URL of the form is:
    https://secure.jotformeu.com/form/40152908421346
    Its a form with German text. The problem is in options text of "Bitte
    Mitgliedsart auswlen".
    Any
    tag in any of the option text avoid a selection in the respective
    "Show / Hide a form field" conditions.
    Futhermorre I have used HTML hard-spaces " " for identation of the
    text lines. This is methode isnt very smart. Maybe you have a better
    solution for that.
    ... I know that this form might be a rather complex one ...
    Best Regards

    Hi Walter,

    I think you enabled the settings to prevent someone from cloning your forms :). But I did copy the form field options and the conditional logic is working fine to my end. Here's a sample form:

    http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40184128222950

    By the way, I think you are after of the alignment of the options, you want it to be on the same line so your break tags and/or hard-spaces. If so, instead of these elements, kindly inject this codes to you form:

    .form-radio-item label {

    display: block;

    top: -19px;

    left: 15px;

    position: relative;

    margin-bottom: -15px;

    }

    Follow this guide to inject: How to Inject Custom CSS Codes. Make sure to remove the spacing from the options before injecting this codes. The output should be the same fro the sample form given.

    Thanks

    Hi Welvin,

    alignment with CSS code works well. Problrm with <br> tag in options text & conditional expression still exists.

    Exemple:
    IF <radio button field> Is Not Equal To <any option text with br-tag is NOT selectable !!>

    ... but I can live with a workaraound.

    Tanks for your kindly support
