    Can we use conditional Drop Down list as part of Infinite List?

    Asked by akabelowsky on August 22, 2015 at 08:23 PM

    Hello, I am trying to come up with a fancy use for Infinite List.

    This is for our newspaper to enter football statistical information when coaches call or email.

    Here's what I'd like to set up:

    1) We choose the two competing schools from a regular, pre-populated drop-down list.

    2) Later on, when it is time to enter the leading individuals (top runners, passers, receivers), we want to use Infinite List to plug in those names and their statistics. What would be ideal would be for the first data field in the first row to be a drop-down list of the team's roster, as plugged in conditionally when we selected the team name(s) up in point No. 1. So if we select Packers as the team, then the Packers roster would appear in the Infinite List drop-down box. The rest of the boxes on the row would be for entries such as Rushing Yards, Passing yards, Receiving Yards.

    Can Infinite List or another widget accomplish this? Thanks

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to target the infinite list widget in the conditional logic. You have to use a plain dropdown field if you want to add a conditional logic.

    Or, use our configurable list widget: http://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget so that you can add a dropdown field in a row.
