    Conditions - not showing fields properly

    Asked by jdjackson7 on October 14, 2014 at 05:39 PM

    Hi,  I have a form to collect a comment. The only field I want to initially show is the first field. It is a check box field with only one option that says "Make a comment".  I have conditions set to show the other fields only when the check box is checked.  It all works except that it also hides that first field.


    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for your help

    It looks like your form works correctly when it's viewed from its direct link

    Also, I have looked at the source code of your HTML page and noticed that you're using a table to embed the form.

    Please try to embed the form within a div tag instead. So, your HTML code would look like this:

    <!doctype html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <div id="myjotform">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="//form.jotformpro.com/jsform/42866404618965"></script>

    The div will adjust its width and heigth of the form and it should be displayed properly.

    Please give it a try and let us know if this works for you.
