    Change a field to read only when another field is completed

    Asked by trowland on December 08, 2015 at 01:01 PM

    Hello, is there a way, possibly with conditional logic, to change one or more fields to read only when another field is completed?

     

    Thank you.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    It should be possible with 'ENABLE / REQUIRE FIELD' conditions. You will need to use 'Disable' actions, please see the next animation.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    That seems to work perfectly, I will continue testing with this method.  Thank you very much.

    I actually do have one other question.  Is there a way to link these actions to someone clicking a "Next" button on a multi-page form?

     

    Thank you

    Great! Glad my colleague's solution helps.

    Yes, this solution should work with multi-page forms too. However, you can't apply disable on page break buttons or create a condition with on click button rules. You can however show/hide the page break buttons if you like.

    Let us know if I have misunderstood your question. Thanks!

    Ok, thank you.  That does answer my question.  I was looking for the "On Click" event for a rule.  Thank you very much.
