    How to Hide Multiple fields base on single condition entry

    Asked by limmudatl on March 11, 2014 at 07:07 PM

    This is my form: http://form.jotform.us/form/40206445983153

    I have tried to set up the number of children being registered the same way you have set up the "number of guests" in your example. But if I set up the condition as such: If "how many children are you registering" is equal to 2 then SHOW child 2, HIDE child 3, HIDE child 4, HIDE child 5, it will still show every child registration. This is the same for any number more than number 1. I have a collapse stopper set up the way suggested after every child registration. What am I doing wrong?

    This is a re-post of a comment on Hide or Show Multiple Fields at Once

    Please correct the following in your form, to make the condition logic work.

    1. Removed the unecessary "End child" collapse fields which you used as "stopper"


    2. Instead of the dropdown field, I suggest you use the Spinner field (found in Survey tools) in the field "How many children are you Registering" -- so that you can apply "greater than" rules in the logic since it pertains to numerical value. In dropdown fields, that value is text only.

    Then, setup the condition logic similar to the screen image below


    I tested this on quick draft version of your form here http://form.jotform.me/form/40697335130452?. You can clone this form if you like to review the back end. Use this guide to clone  



    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for the reply, I needed a couple of differences from what you
    wrote, but the conditions "Greater than 2" and Greater than 3" are not
    working, they do not show the fields I have set. Any insight?
