    How to duplicate the form field?

    Asked by DPCREATE on June 30, 2015 at 09:46 AM

    this doesn't work as it requires the duplicates to exist an unknow number of times first

     

    the logic i want is a whole lot simpler, please explain how to achieve this.

     

    Dropdown user selects the number

    The form section is shown that number of times  i.e. 5 is shown 5 times

    The above method does not allow this - to show section dropdown value of times

    hi

    The articles do not help,  what i need to do is repeat a section of the form a number of times selected by the user from a dropdown.  i.e.  user selects 5 the form section is shown 5 times.

    The show hide options do not work as the number is dynamic and simple needs to repeat the section by the  number selected from the dropdown.

     

    i need the one set of fields repeated a dynamic number of times ( based on the choosen dropdown number)

    for example:

    dropdown : how many events do you run?  ( dynamic unknown number)

    form field section displays x times

    event name:

    event start date:

    event finish date:

    event address:

    etc. etc.

     

    in other words multiple sets of information need to be collected based on the dropdown value, but as i don't know the number of events show hide doesn't work without duplicating the fields by a set number which then makes the dynamic value no longer dynamic.

     

    thanks

    At the present it is not possible to duplicate fields using conditions, you can however use the dynamic text-box to add fields as required.

    Kindly confirm if this addresses you situation
