    Problem with hiding a form field using conditions

    Asked by nwadb on February 14, 2014 at 12:53 AM


    Apparently, there is an issue when a ceratin name is selected from a drop down list, it shows all of the following fields rather than just for the selcted name. In the conditions, I set up to show only one field and hide the rest when a ceratin name is selected.

    Can you please address this?

    Hello Brian,

    You do not have to necessarily add hide conditions if you are showing that fields based on some condition. If the condition does not match that field will be hidden anyway.

    I have cloned your form and changed the conditions to show hide fields based on the selection of "Select your name" dropdown. Please take a look at the following form and see if this is what you were trying to achieve:  http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40440867478968

    Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Thank you!
