    How can I create forms with transparent background and generate a list of states for different countries?

    Asked by moyosonic on October 05, 2011 at 03:20 PM

    Guys, I love your system!!

    I need to integrate a form into a website that has a background image, and I need my form to be transparent, does this question make any sense? if so, how can I do it?

    Besides this, there is a form in particular in which i need to generate a country scroll down menu (I have already figured this out) but non the less I need to then have a state or province selection related to the specific country that has been selected. It sounds like a big request...


    Thank you very much for any help that you can give me.

    Hello moyosonic,

    Yes you can have a transparent background in your form. Please go to the Setup & Embed tab of your form and click Preferences. Then type the word transparent in the background option and click Close Settings:

    And you're done!

    As for the state/province dropdown for a selected country, this is possible by making use of Show/Hide Conditions. For example, If Country selected is Canada, a new dropdown field will appear showing the Canadian provinces and territories. Then if the Country is changed to US, the Canadian province dropdown will be hidden again and a new drop down field showing the 50 states will be shown.
