    How to show hide multiple form fields with one condition?

    Asked by riquee on September 21, 2014 at 11:29 PM



    I'm creating a rather complicated form which requires me to hide multiple fields and show multiple fields if a radio button is checked.

    I keep trying to use the "Hide multiple" and "Show multiple" options, the logic i am using seems logical but everytime i preview my work it is not doing what i am asking of it.


    I am trying to make it so when "Individual /s" is selected it shows everything from "Full Name" up until "Adding more individuals" i have a condition on "Adding more individuals" to only show "Individual 1" up until "Individual 3" only when "Yes i would like to add more individuals" is selected. But it shows all 3 individuals and there is a condition on the radio button.

    The same thing happens for "Owner 1" up until "Owner 3"


    Main thing is i cant seem to use the "Hide multiple" and "Show multiple" feature. Please tell me what i am doing wrong.


    Thank you.

    Hello riquee,

    I did check your form and found that you have duplicate conditions in your form and that is the reason it is not displaying or hiding the fields as expected. Please check the screenshot below:

    Please be noted that there is a better way to organize your conditions to show/hide multiple form field on one single condition. You need to wrap all the form fields under a set of "Form Collapse" field and just hide this collapse filed in your conditions instead of adding multiple show / hide action items. The following guide should help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/297-Show-or-Hide-multiple-fields-at-once-using-form-collapse-tool  

    Please take a look at the following cloned form where I have simplified the conditions and see if this works as expected:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42644565690967?  Feel free to clone this form for a closer look.

    Hope this helps.
