    Hello Vernell_ad,

    Do you mean to say that you want to show / hide radio buttons of a matrix field?

    Unfortunately, we do not have such feature. Currently there is no way to hide any specific fields of matrix field. You can show / hide the matrix fields itself but not any particular fields of a matrix field.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Hi Jerome,

    It's actually possible to do this via injected CSS. For instance, assuming you were referring to your Wedding Essentials form if you want to hide all of the RSVP Cards radio buttons and just the Double-sided option for Thank You Notes in the Essential Items field, inject the following CSS:

    #cid_23 tr:nth-child(3) input,
    #cid_23 tr:nth-child(8) :nth-child(3) input {
    display: none;
    }

    The result would be like this clone. Unfortunately, the nth-child selector is not supported in Internet Explorer 8 and earlier but this can be overcome if the form's full source is embedded into a web page and either edited directly or via a script. (The Prototype framework normalizes support for nth-child.)

    Here's some information on how the nth-child selector but if you need help, please let us know.


    Cheers
