    Can I change a hidden field to show on the form?

    Asked by BreathworksUK on October 09, 2014 at 08:47 AM

    On our sign up form there is currently a hidden field.  I want this field to now display on this form. Can you let me know if this is possible?

    Technically hidden field widget is just used to hide fields and no other feature. If you want something that you have control then you can use a regular Textbox field instead of Hidden field widget.

    Using textbox field will still allow you to hide and show the fields in your Jotform.


    Hidden field doesn't have properties that will un hide it unlike text box.
