    Conditions to show a field based on a country field with an apostrophe do not work

    Asked by kidcastle on August 07, 2015 at 10:36 AM

    When I choose If (address) field (Country equals) (People's Republic of China), the condition doesn't work when I test it in the form.

    I believe that the problem is the apostrophe in "People's" that's messing the code up. I checked several other countries and they all work fine, so this supports my theory.

    I took a look at your form and I see that you are correct, it does not seem to work with the value, most likely due to the apostrophe.

    For this reason I will raise this to our developers for closer inspection and thank you for reporting it.

    What I would however suggest is to check out the following guide to help you show and hide the job fields in a very simple and fast manner: Show or Hide multiple fields at once using form collapse tool

    In regards to the country condition, as soon as our developers resolve this issue they will update you about it through this thread.
