    Things that suck with Jotforms Show/Hide:

    1) The show/hide function just doesn't work properly - it's as easy to break as a glass teapot

    2) You can't use a hidden field to influence a show/hide scanario which takes 80% of the value out of the edit mode

    3) You can't pass a value through a url that will influence the show/hide dependency ??? Duuuhhh

    4) Even using display:none in CSS to hide the field on a form .... one can't access it to change the value in edit mode becuase it can't be seen or accessed ... 

    5) you have to repeat yourself a thousand times creating the show/hide rules

    Some others that I haven't got the time to pop down here as I've done it in the past and it just gets ignored ...

    hope you will consider looking at it


    Thanks Mark
