    I need to Hide one specific radio box option

    Asked by ingaaforms on October 04, 2011 at 05:05 PM

    I have an option which is no longer available, and I would like to retain the ability to edit someone's choice (specifically, someone who I would want to move into this extinct option). The easiest thing I can think of is to simply hide the radio box option which is no longer available. I have looked for the CSS to do this, but to no avail. If anyone knows the CSS to do this (if its possible) it would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, if someone knows another way around this problem, that would be great too!

     

    Thanks so much for all your help!

    Hi inqaaforms.

    Should be easy enough done.

    Could you just let us know which form and radio option you want hidden?

    Thanks.

    It is something I really want to be able to do on several forms. For demonstration purposes, the "experimental form" has a very basic radio button with options 1,2 and 3. Could you show how to hide option 2? Thanks so much!!

    Hi there,

     

    This feature you are looking for isn't yet available in JotForm. You can only hide a specific field not a value/option on a field. If this is not the idea that you are thinking of, please do let us know so that we can give you further assistance.

     

    Thanks,

    This was what I was thinking of, is there any of "workaround" you can think of that would allow me to edit the field (before exporting to a spreadsheet) while not allowing users to select it? (Make it "unclickable" or something similar? I was thinking I could have a message show that notifys them that its full, but it wouldn't stop them from clicking it) Thanks for your responses and help.

    If you wish to have the 2nd radio button hidden, you can try injecting this CSS:

           .form-radio-item #input_7_1, .form-radio-item label[for|="input_7_1"] {display: none;} 

    Let us know if this does not work.

    Thanks,

    Liyam
