    How do I create a form with multiple text boxes which are only show if an answer is correct?

    Asked by Jenna   on February 19, 2016 at 06:25 AM

    Although I have tried to hide my second text box and use a rule that it only appears if something is selected - it's still there.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your response.

    This however, wouldn't be ideal in this situation as we want to use it in a quiz form. So we wouldn't want people to amend their reponse before they submit it.

    Is there a way around this?

    Many thanks.

    Hi,

    I've worked out how to do this now - go back to the jotform platform and click publish.

    However I have noticed that even when incorrect answers are clicked the correct answers aren't shown at the end. I was wondering whether this was a bug or a setting I have missed somewhere.

    Many thanks.

    That is not a bug Jenna, but instead how the app works. Looking at the entire thread however, I do have a suggestion for you that would allow you to accomplish this - 2 actually.

    1. By using conditions (can be edited by opening form again in a new tab only)

    Similar as my colleague David had suggested above, but instead of having the errors shown on the same page, you can add a new page that does not have back button - only submit, which shows them their errors through conditions.

    This would allow you to use any type of logic that you wish so that you can show/hide the right fields and make the same in a layout you prefer.

    2. Using Thank you page (can not be edited without making another submission)

    The beauty of this approach is that you can set up your thank you page to show you what you wish and even change the thank you page depending on some conditions on your page (change which thank you page is shown).

    They can also see the results only when they submit the form.
