    Greater than and Less option for form calculation widget not being displayed in condition wizard.

    Asked by aksynt on March 25, 2014 at 08:29 AM

    Hi Everybody,

    I'm trying to use a condition on a calculated field:

    eg. If the "calculated amount" is greater than "1000", than "hide" "field shipping"

    The problem is that a calculated field isn't seen as a number, thus "is greater than" isn't showing in the conditions list.

    Anybody has a solution for this ?


    PS. Ideally the calculation field would have some scripting capabilities...

    Hello aksynt,

    You are right, the "Form Calculation" widget does not seems to be treated as a number field and hence the condition wizard is not displaying the "Greater than / Less than" option.

    We have already sent the feature request to our back end team and we are already working on it. Unfortunately we will not be able to provide you an ETA on this. I am adding your vote to this feature request and we will update you as soon as this feature is implemented.

    I am unable to think of any workaround unless form's source code is downloaded and custom JavaScript is added to do the validation manually.

    Thank you!
