    Why does show/hide field condition not work?

    Asked by pacificunion on August 01, 2014 at 04:35 PM

    I want a field to be hidden unless someone selects "Yes" on a preceding field.  I applied the following logic:
    IF {field value} is {equal to} "Yes"
    the SHOW {dependent field}

    After I save the form and render it in a new browser window, the field I was suppressed using the logic above appears by default.

    Can someone please help?  Here is the link to my form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42126130437949

    When I checked your form it appeared that this line in your CSS is causing a conflict with the conditions.


    display: none !important;


    If you remove this line, the conditions do indeed work once again.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using Jotform!
