    How to conditionally sho / hide only print button of form?

    Asked by gentlemanmike on September 21, 2015 at 10:25 AM

    I have created a form where the user can select paypal or cheque. What I want to do is for the submit button to appear when they select paypal and the print button to appear when they select cheque.

     

    However, when they select either, BOTH buttons disappear.

    Hello gentlemanmike,

    Please be noted that it is not possible to add condition to show / hide the print button of form. You can only add condition to show / hide the submit button but with a little workaround, it is possible to achieve your requirement. Here are the steps you should follow:

    #1. Remove the "Print Button" from your form.

    #2. Add a "Text" field and copy the print button code in the "HTML" section. You can use the following button code:

    <button id="input_print_2" style="margin-left:25px;" class="form-submit-print form-submit-button-simple_white" type="button">

                  <img src="//d2g9qbzl5h49rh.cloudfront.net/images/printer.png" align="absmiddle">

                  <span class="span_print" id="span_print_2">

                    Print Form

                  </span>

                </button>

    #3. Add condition in your form to show / hide the "Text" field if the "Check" payment option is selected. Please check the screenshot below:

     

     

    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if if this works as expected:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/52635746727970? Feel free to clone this form for a closer look.
