    Two Hides Equal a Show??

    Asked by bunkle on November 28, 2011 at 09:32 PM

    Okay, so I have three pull down fields.  One of them is called Printing and reflects what printing material to use.  One option (Economy Bond) is not available for international sizes so I made a condition:  HIDE international size WHEN printing EQUALS Economy Bond.  The other two pull down fields are for sizes; one is a list of domestic sizes with the last option being to select an international size.  There is a condition to SHOW international sizes WHEN posterfit EQUALS international but to HIDE international sizes when it does not.

    So everything is okie-dokie.  Except when "international sizes" is hidden and then one selects "Economy Bond" then "international sizes" is toggle to become shown despite that the condition explicitely states to hide it.

    So is this a matter that hiding a hidden is a show?

    One solution is to delete the conditions indicated with red arrows and to include two additional rules (click "Add New Rule") in the condition indicated with the green arrow:

    Condition above in detail:

    Save the form when done.

    A clone of your form whose conditions are configured as above can be found at https://www.jotform.com/form/13320546135

    Conditions can be very tricky to set up and it's often best to configure them one at a time, testing the form after each condition or rule is added.
