    Feature request: The capability to use the Language feature in the condition wizard to Hide/Show fields

    Asked by swalther on March 21, 2014 at 10:27 AM

    Hi all!

     

    As I have learned, it's not yet possible to combine the conditional logic with the language of the form.

    I really would love to see that feature soon.

     

    Please add something like "When Language = XXX then Hide/show Field YYY" to the conditional logic dialog.

     

     

    Thanks a lot!

    Sebastian

    selected love thanks all then

    Hi,

    The language feature cannot be included in the conditions currently, so I have submitted a feature requests so that our Development team can consider the implementation of this capability. However, we cannot promise anything about this implementation..

    We will inform you via this thread if we receive any update from our dev team.

    Thanks

    No, we don't have an update yet. Sorry about that.

    We are a little curious though, why would a condition be needed to change the language, if the language selector is available all along?

    Also, wouldn't it be weird for the form to change its language while the user is filling it up?

    Do you perhaps want to change use the form with different languages set as default?

    For example, on website A, default language would be English, and on website B, the default would be French.

    Is that something close to what you're trying to achieve?

    Hi!

     

    Thanks for your reply.

     

    You got me wrong :)

     

    I was talking about the option to have a language condition inside the conditional logics.

     

    E.g. When language = English Hide Form Field 2

    When Language = German = Hide Form Field 3

     

    Thanks!

    No problem :)

    I hope you will add that feature in the future.. would be awesome.

    We want to use that for things like:

     

    If form language = english => Show ZIP Code & State Field

    If form language = german => Hide ZIP Code & State Field & Show PLZ Field.

     

    Would be cool, wouldn't it?
