    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

    Bonjour Ay!

    In order to clone a form using its URL, please follow the steps in this thread: http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-clone-an-existing-form-from-a-URL

    B. Enter options in the Autocomplete field. You can add the word "Autre" to represent "others"

    C. Create a condition so that when the word "Autre is typed in the Autocomplete field, 

    1. Go to the Setup & Embed tab of your toolbar
    2. Click Conditions button
    3. Click Saved Conditions button

    4. Click the Condition in the list.
    5. Change the word to Autre as shown below:

     6. Click Save

    There you have it! The Autocomplete field is now ready.
