    Hiding Tabs created with Form Tab widget

    Asked by Tigrislyn on January 12, 2015 at 11:33 AM

    I am working on a form for our camp registration this summer. It is a clone of the one I used last year.  I have added the Form Tab widget, which has created the tabs as I wanted.  However, I have a few conditionals that would skip pages that were not needed.  While those pages are still skipped, the tabs of the skipped pages are still visible.  Is there a way to hide them?  I really like the tab feature, but really need the ones not being used to be hidden.

    As I understand, you used the conditionals wherein it will skip pages and you want the other selected tabs to be hidden. Unfortunately, there is no option for you to hide the skipped pages from the form tabs widget. If the form tabs widget is activated, it will capture all the pages of the form.

    However, you can hide a specific tab permanently by using this custom css code. This will hide the last tab which is the "Thank you tab".

    #form-tab-17 {display:none;}

    Here's a guide on how to inject custom css.

    Hope this helps. Thank you.

    Doesn't really help.  I need all the tabs some of the time and not at other times. I may have to rearrange my form to get what I need, but is there anyway to insert the code with conditionals?

    Hi Tigrislyn,

    I do apologize, it is not possible to make the inserted CSS code conditional.

    Another option you can explore, would be to use the form collapse option. Instead of using the page break, you would but each section under a form collapse and use conditions to show/hide the desired sections based on the selections made.

    The following guide will show you how to use the conditional logic along with the form collapse. As you would like your users to be able to navigate through the sections, you would not have to hide the form collapse: http://www.jotform.com/help/297-Show-or-Hide-multiple-fields-at-once-using-form-collapse-tool 

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.
