    grouping dropdown values

    Asked by ArielRauch on August 11, 2015 at 02:57 AM


    I would like to achieve the following:

    I have a dropdown list with a lot of values. Each of those values belong to one of a few groups. Most of the form logic should relate to the groups and not to the value itself.

    Is it possible to add a "hidden" field in a dropbox and to refer to it afterwards in the logic?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to add filed within a drop-down list, you might want to consider having a drop-down having the major groups and other drop-down holding items specific to each of the groups which you can the hide or show based on the selected group.
