    Hello Ay,

    Yes, you can use a condition and the shrink function in order to accomplish this. you may clone the demo form below in order to test it:

    In the form I provided earlier, if you enter the word "other" a text box field will be shown beside the autocomplete field.

    Yes thank you I understood.

    But how can I clone the demo and how can I integrate it into my form?

    Furthermore, it is possible to change the word “other” by “autre”? because the form will be destined to French people.


    Thanks a lot,

    Ay
