    Feature Request: Adding Conditions to Specific Fields in the Configurable List Widget

    Asked by mailtodare on December 27, 2014 at 06:55 AM

    I'm grateful for the way you respond to questions.

    Please I need a to have effect of configuration list widget duplicated on a form, to be able to use add button to add a new row of my defined fields. I could not use configuration list widget itself because I could not add conditions to its fields.

    Here is the form http://form.myjotform.com/form/43602534729557

    Thank you for your assistance

    Hi,

    The only thing I can think of is that you add multiple fields and display them depending on the number of times you want to the instance to be displayed. I believe best widgets that could be used here are the Configurable List widget and Infinite List widget, although, as you have mentioned, it does not allow you to add conditions. May I know what conditions you would like to add on the fields? We might have a workaround for it. 

    For the meantime, I think this would be a good addition to add conditions on specific fields on the Configurable List widget. I'll make a feature request on it so that our developers can take a closer look. Although, I can't guarantee that this will be implemented anytime soon.

    Kind regards.

    Thank you for the prompt reply.

    That is the the template for the form

    The "Product" drop-down contains some items which are of three groups  with different prices. I have put an hidden field between product and quantity to different the three group. unit cost is conditioned based on value in the hidden field (1,2,3 depending on the optiongroup) for different price range.

    Quantity was conditioned for minimum number. and total cost with qty*unit cost.

    What I want is if a customer wants to select more than one item in the dropdown, the add new row option will enable that, and the conditions will again be as defined earlier.

    Thanks once again.

    Thank you for the additional information/clarification. 

    For now, a workaround would be to duplicate the fields in your screenshot and repeat the same method such as the conditional logic and the calculation. Then...

    -You can add a radio or checkbox button that would ask users whether they would like to select more item.

    -Add a conditional logic to reveal the additional fields if they select "Yes" from the radio/checkbox field.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I am glad that you have liked the demo made by Titus above and as my colleague Charlie had mentioned our developers will take a look at it and if it gets implemented we will update you through this thread.

    Now as you say that you would like it to look more like the configurable list, you could add a bit of CSS like here: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43643448035960 (this is a slightly modified clone of my colleague above).

    If you like it you can clone it following these steps: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL

    Best Regards,
    Ben
