    Multiple File Upload isn't triggering hide/show conditions

    Asked by mgcaledonian13 on June 11, 2014 at 05:25 PM

    Can the Submit Button be hidden until a condition is met. I would like the Submit Button hidden until all images have been loaded ready for submission.  Can you use a condition that hides the Submit button until there are files in the loaded ready for Submission list or better still when it is complete.

    Just found out that it can but can the population of the upload list fire the submit button?

    You can hide the submit button by adding condition to the upload field of your form. See the screenshot below:

    Please let us know what happens after trying this.

    Thank You.

    Um ! Well that is not quite working as the Submit button appears as soon as you have selected an Event it is not waiting for the upload files to fill. I tried a condition with just the Select as many files... field only and that does not show the Submit button when filled

    Hi Willy,

    Sorry but it is not possible with multiple file upload tool. That is a javascript based tool and not a regular file upload field.

    You may however switch your multiple file upload field into a single file upload field for now, that should trigger the condition as you have also mentioned.

    Don't you worry as I have also raised this as a feature request so our developers will be able to consider this in the future, thus if possible. You will be surely informed here once this is implemented.

    I thought that that might be the case, ah well I will wait patiently.

    While we are on the suject of Multiple Uploads can you ask them to have a look at adding a file count, would be good for the user to see that the number of Uploads matches the number they intended to uplaod, does that make sense.

    All this is just fine tuning, so we can live with it as it is.

    I have said it before on numerous occasions YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST !!!!  Well words to that effect.
